Global connected car solution provider Airbiquity will demonstrate its over-the-air (OTA) software update and data management solution OTAmatic at ELIV Congress 2017.
To be held in Bonn, Germany during October 18-19, ELIV Congress 2017 is a networking event for automotive electronics professionals.
Airbiquity said it will demonstrate an industry-leading connected vehicle service delivery capability allowing vehicle makers and tier-1 suppliers to remotely and securely orchestrate and automate software updates for multiple electronic control units (ECUs) across vehicle platforms—at scale—from the cloud.
The global automotive telematics market, according to Goldstein Research, accounted for over $17 billion in 2015 and is estimated to touch $99 billion in 2024 due to increased automaker deployments of telematics systems.
Telematics systems with OTA software update capabilities will play a central role in minimizing costs associated with software recalls and cybersecurity threats.
IHS projects nearly 90 percent of vehicle recalls this year will be software-related—an exponential jump from less than 1 percent in 1999. This is clear evidence of the increasing inclusion and reliance on software for new vehicle operations and features.
Airbiquity’s OTAmatic software and data management solution is well-positioned to deliver valuable benefits to automakers and tier 1 suppliers with features like multi-ECU capability, highly-refined vehicle and device targeting, discrete policy and privacy controls, customizable consumer notifications, campaign approval and results reporting, and flexibility of deployment hosting options.
During ELIV Congress, Airbiquity will also demonstrate the integration of telematics and connectivity processors from the global semiconductor leader STMicroelectronics (ST). The two companies joined forces to integrate Airbiquity’s OTAmatic solution with ST’s Telemaco3 telematics processor Evaluation Board (EVB) acting as the automotive OTA Gateway.
