Aug. 11, 2017—Toyota, Intel and other technology and auto companies are forming a consortium to create an ecosystem for big data used in connected cars, Toyota automaker said on Thursday, according to The New York Times.

Swiss telecom equipment maker Ericsson, Japanese auto parts maker Denso Corp and telecoms firm NTT DoCoMo Inc are also part of the big data group, called the Automotive Edge Computing Consortium.

The consortium aims to use data to support emerging services such as intelligent driving, creating maps with real-time data and driving assistance based on cloud computing, Toyota said in a statement.

Data volume between vehicles and the cloud is expected to reach 10 exabytes per month around 2025, about 10,000 times larger than at present, Toyota said.

Last week, Toyota and smaller rival Mazda Motor Corp. said that they would work jointly on producing electric and connected cars.
