Fujitsu launches integrated platform to support utilization of mobility data

Fujitsu has developed the “FUJITSU Future Mobility Accelerator Digital Twin Collector” (Digital Twin Collector), a platform that virtually integrates and manages information on mobility devices such as connected cars, smartphones, and tablets. It will be released on April 22 for automobile manufacturers and non-life insurance companies. The Digital Twin Collector uses a traffic scheduler function to level the amount of communication from the mobility device to the cloud and realize stable communication. In addition, the data coverage control function enables comprehensive data collection without duplication. With these functions, large volumes of data such as video on mobility devices can be duplicated on the cloud platform as needed for analysis and processing. Therefore, it is possible to manage large-capacity mobility data such as vehicles and road traffic and to use it with significantly reduced communication costs.

Possible use cases of this product include efficiency / sophistication of non-life insurance business, sophistication of road management business, and vehicle failure analysis. When an accident occurs, simply by specifying the location and time of the accident, it is possible to automatically acquire images of the vehicle and surrounding vehicles before and after the accident. In addition, since it is possible to acquire real-time images related to events occurring on the road such as traffic jams, accidents, falling obstacles, and bad weather based on vehicle behavior, the road management and operation company can quickly check the detailed situation. Furthermore, by collecting peripheral images when an abnormal value is detected by a vehicle sensor, an automobile manufacturer can utilize it for estimating the cause of a failure and providing feedback to vehicle development. In terms of data collection and storage cost reduction, it will be possible to reduce costs by 50% compared to the conventional method. By managing only lightweight metadata without holding a large amount of data such as video recorded by mobility devices in the cloud, distributed data is virtually integrated. This allows users such as automobile manufacturers and non-life insurance companies to access only the data they need. The traffic scheduler function suppresses mass communication by controlling data replication requests from mobility devices. When it is necessary to collect video data from one’s own vehicle or surrounding vehicles all at once due to an accident, etc., when accessing each mobility device and replicating the data, the load on the cloud side suddenly increases and congestion occurs. Occurs. Even in such a case, the same function realizes stable data access. The data coverage control function analyzes data access and acquisition status for a large number of mobility devices in a cross-cutting manner. As a result, it is possible to suppress duplication of similar data such as video data having the same time, place, and angle of view and to cover the acquired data at the same time. If the learning data for autonomous driving is biased at the time of acquisition, the service quality may be affected, but this function contributes to the analysis using the data and the stabilization of the quality of the service to be realized. The service configuration of Digital Twin Collector is to build a requirement definition support service and usage environment that organizes requirement specifications according to customer’s request, in addition to the basic service that virtually integrates and manages the data distributed to mobility devices. It provides a total of 5 types of services, including setup services. The sales price excluding tax is as shown in the figure below. Sales price excluding tax for each service (Source: Fujitsu)
