PSA Peugeot Citroën device-to-cloud solutions means faster time-to-innovation

PSA Peugeot Citroën has connected more than 1.6 million Peugeot, Citroën, and DS vehicles to date, and, since the introduction of its in-vehicle emergency notification systems in 2003, has sent more than 13,000 alerts to emergency services operating in 17 European countries.

Business Challenge

Looking to the future, the Group needs to stay ahead of several trends. In-vehicle wireless connectivity is quickly moving from luxury models and premium brands to high-volume mid-market models, and studies show that a majority of buyers would switch brands if it means getting the digital features they want. Also, the IoT is creating new possibilities for enhanced driver assistance, increasingly autonomous driving, and unprecedented safety. PSA Peugeot Citroën needs a way to quickly and cost effectively develop, deploy, and maintain new connected car services on a global scale.

Sierra Wireless Device-to-Cloud Solution

The Group turned to their long-trusted partner, Sierra Wireless. The two organizations have worked closely on telematics solutions for more than 15 years, and will now join forces once again to design, deliver, and manage the expansion of PSA Peugeot Citroën’s connected car offerings.

The approach will use a unique combination of device-to-cloud technologies, developed by Sierra Wireless, that simplify the deployment of new software and services. By leveraging pre-integrated, pre-tested modules, software, and cloud services, PSA Peugeot Citroën will build on a proven method, optimized for automotive, that reduces time-to-market for comprehensive telematics solutions.
