An overview of content and participating host/speakers.

Especially relevant for Automotive Industry Experts, Mobility Experts, IT Experts. More specifically: Connected Mobility -, Software Development -, Aftermarket -, Quality Management -, and Automotive Cyber Security Units 

OTA Update Functionality is gaining relevance due to ever gaining complexity of software in vehicles. Around that professional solutions have to be implemented taking into consideration aspects of security, continuous improvement, social/geographical factors, functional safety, etc. Simultaneously these developments lead to significant economical potentials that automotive companies have to unlock.

We will discuss the following questions:

  • How can the well-known concept of OTA updates be implemented in a complex automotive environment?
  • What benefits can the OTA functionality provide for the ARENA2036 FlexCar research platform?

Agenda & Topics

All times CET, Berlin/Germany

  • Introductions Excelfore (USP) / DXC (+ joint concept)
  • Joint Research approach
  • Live Demo
  • Q&A 

Project Teaser

This session is associated with a pilot project that has been developed throughout our most recent STARTUP AUTOBAHN program. The comprehensive overview of this collaboration can be found below.

Driving Automotive Research Forward with Open-Platform Over-the-Air Updates and Upgrades

Leveraging advanced vehicle-to-cloud connectivity, over-the- air (OTA) updates have become a critical enabler for the modern, software-defined vehicles. Not only do they add new features, fix bugs in the ECUs’ embedded software and solve technical issues, but they also improve the cybersecurity of the vehicle without time-consuming workshop appointments and downtime. Downloadable software upgrades span every aspect of the vehicle: from optimized infotainment applications to better battery range, enhanced performance of safety-critical braking and steering systems up to engine performance improvement. Crucially, they allow service and maintenance to be done at home or on the go, simultaneously delivering consumer satisfaction as well as cost and revenue benefits for the mobility players involved. Thus, OTA updates are compelling especially because they allow digital mobility services and vehicle innovations to be continuously provided throughout a vehicle’s lifetime.

Project Teasers can be accessed and downloaded on the respective program startup profiles with which our STARTUP AUTOBAHN partners teamed up with.
For this POC the following startup has been involved:
