The Software Defined Car™ offers the automotive industry an opportunity to upgrade a vehicle’s functionality via over-the-air (OTA) software updates. This enables the vehicle to continuously adapt to the needs of the driver and the fleet operator. Now and in the near-term, OTA software updates pertain to the need to update the vehicle to avoid warranty costs, recall avoidance costs and apply security patches. But do these functionalities need to stop there? No! The OTA software update process can also be used much more dynamically by including context-based parameters through an eco-system of cloud platforms that each on their own provides unique data whether relating to natural disasters, pollution levels or local/regional regulations. As an example, the process itself can take place automatically with the changing location of the car in tandem with the respective geographic zone and the parameters relating to it. Unexpected events across the globe such as hurricanes, floods and increased pollution levels cause major problems that to varying degrees can be tackled with rapid OTA software updates and which might ultimately save lives. Other urban problems such as traffic congestion and public parking can also be eased via the same technology.

Key Take-Aways:

  1. How to move beyond traditional software updates and into dynamic updating based on third-party data?
  2. How to deliver context-based software updates using multi-vendor cloud platforms?
  3. How to alleviate human distress with artificial intelligence and context-based OTA updates?
