Artificial intelligence and wireless technologies have progressed rapidly in the last decade driven by technology evolution and new emerging applications. The automotive industry has the opportunity to benefit from progress in these fields. In this paper, the authors propose an extensible software framework that can be implemented on all vehicles. It comprehends the capabilities supporting wireless communication and analytics for collaborative intelligence among vehicles and data mining solutions. The architecture has four key modules for: interface to on-board controls, external wireless communication, artificial intelligence, and an internal virtual bus. The design is implemented as a framework so that new applications can be developed with minimal additions to achieve high end solutions.
