The Transportation Mobility Cloud, created by Autonomic, is claimed to be the first open cloud-based platform that connects the diverse components of urban mobility systems, including connected vehicles, mass transit, pedestrians, city infrastructure and service providers "” with the goal of orchestrating a safer, more efficient and sustainable transportation network.

"Our goal is to be the foremost connected mobility cloud globally, and I'm excited for the opportunity to power and pave the way for future cities," said Gavin Sherry, co-founder, and CEO of Autonomic. "By uniting all connected vehicles on a single platform, along with other transport agencies, cities, and developers, the possibilities of how we can advance and synchronize transportation and mobility are endless."

Previously leading Autonomic's innovation as co-founder and Vice President of Engineering, Sherry is now responsible for spurring the growth and adoption of the Transportation Mobility Cloud, while Autonomic's former CEO and now Vice President of Ford X, a part of Ford Smart Mobility LLC, Sundeep (Sunny) Madra will serve as a board member and advisor.

"As cities look to improve transportation options and increase livability for their citizens, enhancing mobility is key to meeting this challenge. Gavin is the right leader to take Autonomic to the next stage of growth and ensure the TMC becomes the foremost platform that developers and automakers use to deliver their mobility goals," says Madra.

Autonomic's executive team hails from Amazon Web Services, Pivotal, Proofpoint (NASDAQ PFPT), Greenplum (acquired by EMC) and Xtreme Labs (acquired by Pivotal). The team has a track record of delivering large-scale, high impact cloud and distributed systems and several executives were instrumental in building the first version of Amazon Web Services, and leading consumer, open source and cloud software.

Now, the team is taking a similar approach to creating a transportation platform at a scale that paves the way for all developers and automakers, in addition to Ford, to build on the Transportation Mobility Cloud.

As part of Sherry's appointment into the role of CEO, Autonomic's executive leadership is elevating to further meet the needs of the industry and the company's partners which include auto manufacturers, developers, parts suppliers and fleet operators.
