What is AWS IoT FleetWise?

AWS IoT FleetWise is a managed service that you can use to collect, transform, and transfer vehicle data to the cloud in near real time. With AWS IoT FleetWise, you can collect and organize data from vehicles that use different protocols and data formats. AWS IoT FleetWise helps to transform low-level messages into human-readable values and standardize the data format in the cloud for data analyses. You can also define data collection campaigns to control what vehicle data to collect and when to transfer that data to the cloud.

When the vehicle data is in the cloud, you can use it for applications that analyze vehicle fleet health. This data can help you to identify potential maintenance issues, make in-vehicle infotainment systems smarter, and improve advanced technologies like autonomous driving and driver-assistance systems with analytics and machine learning.

The following diagram shows the basic architecture of AWS IoT FleetWise.

The key benefits of AWS IoT FleetWise are:

Easily access standardized, fleet-wide data

Access the unique data format of any vehicle, structure it, and make it understandable without having to develop a custom system. With an aggregated data structure, you can easily access fleet-wide insights and identify trends while using your cloud-based applications and services.

Transfer vehicle data to the cloud more efficiently

Create intelligent data collection campaigns that send only the data signals you need to the cloud. This helps keep costs lower and gives you access to more useful data. With AWS IoT FleetWise, you can reduce the amount of data transferred to the cloud from vehicles.

Detect and mitigate issues faster by surfacing vehicle health data in near real time

Surface selected data about widespread vehicle quality issues and take corrective action quickly, such as notifying the manufacturing group to help mitigate further spread. By detecting problems early, you can reduce service and warranty costs and maintain customer trust.

Remotely diagnose problems in near real time

Provide customers remote assistance if something is wrong with their vehicle. Use data from AWS IoT FleetWise to diagnose issues in near real time. Then, help the customer with a fix at home, or work with a dealer to order parts and schedule a service appointment. You can use the collected information to continually improve the experience.

Use cases

The scenarios in which you can use AWS IoT FleetWise include the following:

Maintain EV battery health

Monitor EV battery health and charge levels, and improve range estimates for drivers.

Enhance the in-cabin experience

Use data from in-vehicle infotainment systems to make services, audiovisual content, and features more relevant.

Improve fleet operations

Use insights from commercial fleet data to analyze driver safety, vehicle uptime, and maintenance schedules.

Accessing AWS IoT FleetWise

You can use the AWS IoT FleetWise console or API to access AWS IoT FleetWise.


The AWS IoT FleetWise console currently supports creating vehicle models and decoder manifests only.

Pricing for AWS IoT FleetWise

Vehicles send data to the cloud through MQTT messages. You pay at the end of each month for the vehicles that you created in AWS IoT FleetWise. You also pay for messages that you collect from vehicles. For current information about pricing, see the AWS IoT FleetWise Pricing page. To learn more about the MQTT messaging protocol, see MQTT in the AWS IoT Core Developer Guide.

AWS IoT FleetWise integrates with the following AWS services to improve the availability and scalability of your cloud solutions.

  • AWS IoT Core – Register and control AWS IoT devices that upload vehicle data to AWS IoT FleetWise. For more information, see What is AWS IoT in the AWS IoT Developer Guide.

  • Amazon Timestream – Use a time series database to store and analyze your vehicle data. For more information, see What is Amazon Timestream in the Amazon Timestream Developer Guides.
