Creates a vehicle, which is an instance of a vehicle model (model manifest). Vehicles created from the same vehicle model consist of the same signals inherited from the vehicle model.


If you have an existing Amazon Web Services IoT thing, you can use Amazon Web Services IoT FleetWise to create a vehicle and collect data from your thing.

For more information, see Create a vehicle (AWS CLI) in the Amazon Web Services IoT FleetWise Developer Guide .

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
