    You can also download the template as a starting point for your own implementation.

  2. The template is launched in the US East (N. Virginia) Region by default. To launch the solution in a different AWS Region, use the region selector in the console navigation bar.


    This solution uses Amazon Cognito AWS IoT, Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics, and Amazon Kinesis Data Streams which are available in specific AWS Regions only. Therefore, you must launch this solution an AWS Region where these services are available. For the most current service availability by region, see

  3. On the Select Template page, verify that you selected the correct template and choose Next.

  4. On the Specify Details page, assign a name to your solution stack and choose Next.


    The name for your solution stack should not exceed 64 characters and will include a predefined string that is appended to the name you enter. We recommend that you keep your stack name to 40 characters or less to ensure you do not exceed the character limitation. For information about character limitations, see IAM and STS Limits in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide.

  5. On the Options page, choose Next.

  6. On the Review page, review and confirm the settings. Be sure to check the box acknowledging that the template will create AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) resources.

  7. Choose Create to deploy the stack.

    You can view the status of the stack in the AWS CloudFormation console in the Status column. You should see a status of CREATE_COMPLETE in roughly five minutes.


In addition to the AWS Lambda functions that process and store data, this solution includes the connected-vehicle-helper Lambda function, which runs only during initial configuration or when resources are updated or deleted.

When running this solution, the connected-vehicle-helper function is inactive. However, do not delete the function as it is necessary to manage associated resources.
