SEATTLE, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Airbiquity, a global leader in connected vehicle services, and NXP Semiconductors today announced the integration of Airbiquity’s OTAmatic over-the-air (OTA) software and data management offering with NXP’s Vehicle Network Processing (VNP) Evaluation Board (EVB).
Connected vehicles and autonomous vehicle systems demand an increasing reliance on software, electronic control units (ECUs), and sophisticated microprocessors. Coupled with the rising intricacy and complexity of managing software updates and data collection for millions of vehicles around the world, these vehicles require a combination of high-performance vehicle network processors backed by a robust OTA software and data management solution.
This integration highlights the interoperability between Airbiquity’s cloud-based OTA service delivery capability and NXP’s next-generation VNP platform managing multiple ECUs for a variety of software update campaign scenarios and automaker and automotive supplier OTA use cases. Together, the automotive-grade technologies will serve as a primary ECU/OTA gateway for efficient, secure, and highly-scalable multi-ECU software updates and data collection.
“The NXP Vehicle Network Processing Evaluation Board unlocks connected vehicle data to enable new revenue streams and reduce costs for automakers,” said Brian Carlson, Director of Product Line Management for Automotive Connectivity and Security at NXP. “Finally, automakers have an automotive-grade platform that brings together applications processing and real-time vehicle network processing with Gigabit Ethernet acceleration to revolutionize gateways for a new era of vehicle services.”
“Airbiquity’s OTAmatic solution securely delivers industry-leading over-the air software update and data collection services that adapt and scale to the unique needs of each automaker,” said Keefe Leung, Director of Product Management for Airbiquity. “Partnering with NXP to integrate OTAmatic on their VNP platform is a natural complement with its extensive hardware support for both current and future automotive architectures. The pre-validated, integrated OTA solution reduces risk for customers and serves as a powerful innovation platform for developing enhanced services for the future.”
Airbiquity and NXP Semiconductors will be demonstrating its joint technology integration and OTA solution during CES 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada at the NXP Semiconductors exhibit located at #CP-18 in the CES Central Plaza.
