Groupe Renault and Google today announced an expanded partnership to design and deliver the digital architecture of “Software Defined Vehicles” (SDVs) and to accelerate the Group’s digitalization. The two partners will develop a suite of onboard and offboard software components specifically for SDV, expanding synergies and use cases related to the Group’s ‘Move to Cloud’ strategy.
Launched in 2018, this collaboration on cloud computing aims to develop a digital twin, a virtual twin of a vehicle equipped with cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, to more easily and continuously integrate new services into the system. is accelerating today with the creation of Creation of vehicles and new on-board (in-vehicle services) and off-board applications. The group will eventually move its entire operating model to the cloud to improve agility, performance and profitability.
“The complexity of automotive electronic architectures is exponentially increasing with the increasing sophistication of features and services that customers expect. With shared IT platforms, continuous over-the-air updates and streamlined access to vehicle data, Google The SDV approach, developed in partnership with the and help Renault roll out a new portfolio of services.Finally, a strategic partnership with Google will accelerate the end-to-end digital transformation of a vehicle, from design to manufacturing to market introduction and ultimately “At Google, we go beyond working together to bring software champions and mobility champions together to create breakthrough technology.”

New innovations in vehicles
Renault Group and Google are expanding their partnership into a collaboration to develop platforms and services for the future of SDV. The collaboration includes in-vehicle software that enables a “Software Defined Vehicle” platform and cloud software that enables a digital twin.
This collaboration will enable Groupe Renault to reduce costs, improve efficiency, flexibility and speed of vehicle development, and increase end-user value through continuous software innovation.
Renault Group plans to expand its use of Google Cloud technologies for SDV to manage data capture and analysis more securely and confidentially for vehicle software development. This supports first use cases in development such as:
- Improved predictive maintenance and near-real-time fault detection and correction when needed.
- A personalized experience in the car (in-vehicle services) to adapt to driving behavior, frequently used destinations such as EV charging stations, etc.
- An insurance model based on real-world usage and driving behavior.
Combined with its “Software Defined Vehicle” platform and its car data platform, Renault Group will monitor and analyze vehicle usage, better understand customer needs and behavior, and create highly personalized vehicles according to customer expectations. We plan to provide a service that Applicable Security and Privacy Standards.
Renault Group becomes a technology company with Google Cloud
Groupe Renault captures 1 billion pieces of data daily across all manufacturing sites, connected production lines and supply chain data hosted and analyzed in the cloud, and after more than four years of partnership on cloud computing, We recognize the benefits of agility and performance. The Group today named Google as its preferred cloud partner, leveraging its innovations in machine learning and AI, its continued investment in open and ever more sustainable infrastructure, and its secure cloud approach.
