Open source, automotive-grade over-the-air (OTA) updates

Innovate, differentiate, and compete in a software-centered marketplace

Competing in a software-defined automotive world

Electrification, self-driving, autonomous tech – once focused on physical goods, the auto industry now exists in a software-centered world competing with software-defined vehicles. To not just survive but thrive, automotive vendors and their suppliers must differentiate.

Differentiation requires innovation. Today, innovation requires efficient, robust, and secure over-the-air (OTA) updates. While critical, OTA infrastructure is not a product differentiator. Yet without it, innovation and competitiveness fail to progress.

  • Deliver secure, robust, and fail-safe remote updates. Optimize resource usage and mitigate risks with delta, automated, phased, and dynamic grouping deployments. Ensure your devices are never bricked and inaccessible with a fail-safe design.
  • Monitor your fleet in real-time. Identify disruptions with system-wide log monitoring, automated alerts, and email notifications. Manage uptime with real-time visibility of services and applications across your fleet.
  • Configure devices and applications with ease. Define attributes, customize scripts, and track configuration changes. Manage and secure configuration changes with role-based access control and configuration history and change log audits.
  • Troubleshoot instantly, and resolve quickly. Diagnose and remediate issues immediately with real-time device access, file transfers, and device testing. Ensure security with complete remote terminal session replays, connection logs, and access control.
