ACO Tech Sdn Bhd and Huawei Technologies (M) Sdn Bhd collaborated to introduce the Atlas car infotainment operating system in Malaysia. 

The collaboration which focuses on Huawei Cloud technology and Big Data, as well as ACO Tech’s expertise in smart mobility will go towards building a thriving Internet of Vehicles (IoV) ecosystem for both players and users.

As part of the partnership, Atlas (ACO Tech local automotive services) will see upgrade that incorporates the Cloud Alpha Edge solutions to build IoV Big Data telematics service providers platform.

Huawei Malaysia CEO Michael Yuan said Atlas is crucial in making a difference in the competitive scenario within the automotive industry.

The platform was introduced last September targeting customer experience and usability while innovating ACO Tech and increasing its business value.

The Atlas OS is a system that has been wholly led and developed by a Malaysian team and is an entirely new setup that runs on Android 10 and above.

Atlas has provided infotainment services for over 10,000 in-vehicle users to date and is expected to reach 100,000 by the end of 2022, the company said. 

Yuan said Cloud computing is the catalyst for the digital transformation of the industry, and is convinced the Huawei Cloud is essential in pushing the digital drive across the industry.

Huawei is determined to provide reliable, secure and cost-effective cloud services to help organisations of all sizes grow in today’s intelligent world.

“By incorporating our Big Data and artificial intelligence technologies, ACO Tech will be able to bring more benefits to the IoV market and invite industry Smart Mobility partners to jointly build a thriving and robust IoV ecosystem,” Yuan said. 

“This partnership will also further promote the adoption of smart mobility lifestyles in Malaysia and across the region, bringing digital to every car,” he said.

Cloud Alpha Edge, as Malaysia’s first hyper-scale public Cloud, will continue to serve as a platform to bridge the digital divide and harness the potential of innovation in organisations for a seamless and optimal Cloud experience.
