Alibaba to host Ford's cloud-based connected cars platform in China

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. has agreed to host Ford Motor Co.'s Autonomics cloud-based platform for connected cars in China, according to an Aug. 14 release.

Under the agreement, Alibaba Cloud will run Ford-owned Autonomic's Transportation Mobility Cloud, or TMC, an open platform that enables communication between cars and city infrastructure.

The TMC platform is expected to benefit transportation stakeholders through its capabilities to provide standardized data and infrastructure for software developers to build applications for connected vehicles, such as planning trips for drivers and fleet management for ride-hailing businesses or self-driving cars.
