Fisker Automotive – Wikipedia

Fisker Automotive was an American company known for producing the Fisker Karma, which was one of the world’s first production luxury plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. It debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show, and first deliveries were in 2011. Production of the Fisker Karma was suspended in November 2012 due to bankruptcy of its battery supplier A123 Systems,[9] with about 2,450 Karmas built since 2011 and over 2000 cars sold worldwide.[10] In February 2014, Fisker Automotive’s Karma vehicle design, tooling and a manufacturing facility in Delaware were purchased by Chinese auto parts conglomerate Wanxiang Group. Henrik Fisker, the founder of Fisker Automotive, retained the Fisker trademarks and the Fisker brand and launched a separate company, Fisker Inc., in 2016. Wanxiang later renamed its new company Karma Automotive.[11]

AWS Connected Vehicle Solution architecture

When AWS IoT receives a message, it authenticates and authorizes the message and the Rules Engine executes the appropriate rule on the message, which routes the message to the appropriate backend application.

An AWS IoT rule sends telematics data to an Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose delivery stream, which encrypts and streams raw vehicle telematics data to an Amazon S3 bucket. If an Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics application detects an anomaly, the record is sent to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams, which invokes an AWS Lambda function that parses the record, stores it in an Amazon DynamoDB table, and triggers an Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) notification to users.

The trip data AWS IoT rule invokes an AWS Lambda function that processes vehicle telematics data during a trip and stores it in a DynamoDB table.

Expect U.S. Car Sales and Production to Decline Dramatically

The Washington PostGetty Images

  • As COVID-19 has forced people to stay home, analysts are projecting lost auto production and sales to result.
  • Across the U.S. and the globe, the threat of COVID-19 spreading among factory employees has forced companies to suspend production.
  • Many analysts have revised their new-vehicle sales estimates in the U.S. for 2020, originally forecasting sales of 16.5 million to 17 million, and now projecting sales of between 13 and 14 million.

    The novel coronavirus has brought the U.S. economy to a standstill and analysts are now getting a grasp on how the virus is going to impact the automotive industry. Production has come to a halt for most plants in the U.S. and sales projections are being revised to reflect the economic turmoil which has engulfed the industry.

    Over the course of last week, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, General Motors, Mercedes-Benz, Subaru, Toyota, Volkswagen and others all

    Car sales in China fell 92% in the first half of February as the coronavirus shutdown took its toll, according to an industry trade body.

    Car dealerships have remained closed while buyers have stayed away to prevent the spread of the deadly virus.

    Nationwide car sales slumped 96% in the first week of February to a daily average of just 811 vehicles.

    The China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) said it hoped sales would pick up as more showrooms reopened.

    “There was barely anybody at car dealers in the first week of February as most people stayed at home,” said CPCA secretary general Cui Dongshu.

    Dealers have gradually restarted operations this month, and the automobile trade body is hoping sales will improve during the second half of February.

    Chinese car maker Geely has just launched a “contactless” service that lets customers buy its cars online and get
