This approach allows maximizing data value, predicting individual behavior, leveraging sensor data across devices, and combining real-world data with clustered groups of people distinguished by attributes.

The integration of CloudMade’s software technology is expected to support Stellantis’ strategy in developing intelligent mobility products, enhancing the overall customer experience with personalized features. These features will cover areas such as predictive maintenance and diagnostics, personalized in-car experiences, Stellantis-specific voice assistants, optimized mobile experiences, advanced navigation and mapping, and targeted features for fleet management.

Through this acquisition, Stellantis aims to develop end-to-end and fully owned navigation features, enhance data privacy, and introduce development kits for making custom models for its software developers. This strategic move is poised to contribute significantly to Stellantis’ goal of providing innovative and personalized mobility solutions to its customers.
