Showcase its over-the-air (OTA) Software & Data Management solution at Mobile World Congress 2017, the world's largest mobile-centric conference held in Barcelona, Spain from February 27 -- March 2. During the five-day event, Airbiquity will demonstrate an industry-leading connected vehicle service delivery capability which allows automotive manufacturers and tier 1 suppliers to remotely orchestrate and automate multi-electronic control unit (ECU) vehicle software updates and data collection -- at scale -- from the cloud.
On Feb.21, according to IHS, OTA is projected to provide tremendous financial benefits to the automotive industry in the coming years, with global cost savings for mitigating software recall and cybersecurity expected to increase from $2.7 billion in 2015 to over $35 billion in 2022, Use of this technology will also result in faster recall compliance and cybersecurity response times, eliminate the need for consumers to bring vehicles to dealers for software updates, and enable post-purchase performance and feature enhancements contributing to customer satisfaction.
Airbiquity's multi-ECU Software & Data Management solution is well-positioned to help deliver these benefits with automotive grade features like highly-refined vehicle and device targeting, discrete policy and privacy controls, customizable consumer notifications, campaign approval and results reporting, and a variety of hosting options. Airbiquity will demonstrate the integration of telematics and connectivity processors from STMicroelectronics (ST), a global semiconductor leader. The two companies joined forces to integrate Airbiquity's OTA service delivery capability with ST's new Telemaco3 telematics processor Evaluation Board (EVB) acting as a safe and secure automotive OTA Gateway.
