Seattle, WA – October 27, 2016 – Airbiquity®, a global leader in connected car services, will showcase its innovative Software & Data Management solution and participate in a panel discussion about over-the-air (OTA) software updates at TU-Automotive Europe 2016, in Munich, Germany, on November 2-3. TU-Automotive Europe is Europe’s largest conference and exhibition dedicated to automotive telematics. This year’s event is organized around three pillars of automotive telematics technology and service delivery evolution: connectivity, mobility, and autonomy.
OTA software updates addressing recalls and cybersecurity threats are forecasted to provide huge financial benefits to automakers in the years ahead. Global cost savings are projected to grow from $2.7 billion in 2015 to over $35 billion in 2022, according to research firm IHS. OTA software updates will also allow automakers to achieve faster recall compliance times, eliminate consumer burdens of bringing vehicles to dealers for repairs, and deliver post-purchase performance and feature enhancements contributing to customer satisfaction and loyalty.
As more and more connected vehicles are enabled to receive OTA software updates—as well as export operational and driving behavior data—automakers will need a way to efficiently manage the increasing complexity of doing OTA for millions of vehicles with a multitude of electronic components, systems, and software files from numerous suppliers. Airbiquity’s Software & Data Management solution addresses this need with a robust, automated service delivery capability specifically tailored to the unique needs of automotive. Using a back-end service management portal, automakers can efficiently manage both OTA software updates and data collection at scale with highly refined vehicle and device targeting, discrete policy and privacy controls, and customizable consumer notifications to name a few features.
Airbiquity will be providing demonstrations of its Software & Data Management offering for customers, analysts, and press during TU-Automotive 2016 in the company’s private on-site meeting room. Contact Airbiquity for additional information or to request a demonstration.
Additionally, Airbiquity’s Vice President of Marketing, Scott Frank, will participate in a panel discussion with executives from Ericsson, Harmon, and Strategy Analytics about the issues related to designing and deploying OTA technology and services. Panel details are as follows:
