Wind River and Airbiquity team to develop Vehicle-to-Cloud OTA solutions


Wind River, a leader in delivering IoT software for critical infrastructure, and Airbiquity, a leader in connected vehicle services, are working towards integrating key technologies to develop an end-to-end software lifecycle management solution for connected and autonomous vehicles, one that spans vehicle to cloud.


The solution will enable secure and intelligent over-the-air (OTA) software updates and data management.

Proper and proactive management of software over the course of a vehicle's lifecycle is becoming increasingly important to enhance performance, maintain value, and address safety and security threats. Using OTA, carmakers can securely transmit diagnostic and operational data and efficiently deploy software updates to mitigate recall expenses and enable new vehicle features.

Wind River and Airbiquity will provide the automotive industry with an open and flexible OTA solution combining market-leading software technology components to create a comprehensive, interoperable, pre-validated OTA solution backed by the expertise of two-industry leading software technology companies.

Wind River plans to contribute its Edge Sync, a highly modular, OTA update and software lifecycle management solution. Airbiquity will contribute its OTAmatic solution including OTA orchestration, campaign management, software and data management, and Uptane-based security framework capabilities.

“Carmakers are facing pressure to introduce highly complex features and constantly provide more value. Advancing software management to securely address the entire lifecycle of a car will be an effective strategy to help carmakers deliver more and ongoing innovation while staying cost-effective,” said Marques McCammon, Vice President of Automotive at Wind River. “By teaming up with leaders like Airbiquity, we can help carmakers meet evolving customer and business needs.”

“Airbiquity understands the market need for robust, secure, and highly scalable OTA solutions with proven interoperability from known suppliers,” said Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and CEO of Airbiquity. “We look forward to bringing this joint OTA solution to automotive and other markets with a highly capable technology, marketing, and sales partner such as Wind River.”

Edge Sync provides a market-leading performant solution to allow for rapid, safe, and secure updates to software and firmware to continuously improve the value of the car and customer experiences on a long-term basis. It also includes technology that enables the smallest differential update when conducting OTA updates. Keeping updates minimal reduces distribution time and cost, update transmission time, and memory required on automotive electronic control units (ECUs).

OTAmatic is an industry-leading multi-ECU OTA solution that securely orchestrates and automates vehicle software updates and data management from the cloud. OTAmatic provides a sophisticated OTA service with highly refined vehicle and device targeting; discrete policy and privacy controls; customisable consumer communications; multi-layer cybersecurity protection; and solution deployment flexibility.
