Modern vehicles are increasingly dependent on software, processors, TCUs, and ECUs to power important systems and useful features. As such, the ability to efficiently perform OTA software updates--on demand--is critical for automakers, suppliers, and consumers alike. OTA is forecasted to provide huge financial benefits to the automotive industry in the coming years, with global cost savings for mitigating software recall and cybersecurity expenses projected to increase from $2.7 billion in 2015 to over $35 billion in 2022, according to recent research from IHS [https://technology.ihs.com/532397/auto-tech-report-over-the-air-software-updates-2015].

Core components of this initiative are Airbiquity's Software & Data Management [https://www.airbiquity.com/product-offerings/software-and-data-management/] product, Choreo [https://www.airbiquity.com/choreo-platform/](TM) service delivery platform, and current and future ST Telemaco [http://www.st.com/content/st_com/en/products/automotive-infotainment-and-telematics/telematics-and-connectivity-processors/sta1088.html] connectivity and telematics processors which power application areas such as vehicle gateways, entertainment systems, and telematics and connectivity systems. The two companies have validated the performance of the initial integration, and plan to continue collaborating for further optimization.

"By joining forces with STMicroelectronics we are better aligned to service the automotive market with a high-performance end-to-end OTA solution," said Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and CEO of Airbiquity. "This software, hardware, and service delivery combination provides tremendous value to automotive today, and the potential to serve non-automotive IoT in the future."

Airbiquity's Software & Data Management product and Choreo service delivery platform orchestrates and automates highly targeted, scalable, and secure software updates and data collection for connected vehicles. Airbiquity also integrates the diverse spectrum of vehicle systems, connectivity devices, communication networks, back office IT systems, and content and service providers for both traditional and emerging connected vehicle services.

ST's Telemaco family of telematics and connectivity processors are power efficient systems-on-chips targeting cost effective processing solutions for innovative automotive telematics and connectivity applications. The latest generation devices will feature a powerful Dual ARM Cortex-A7 processor; integrated audio ADC and DAC; digital sound processor; accelerated cryptographic functions, isolated sub-system based on ARM Cortex-M3 for CAN interface; and complete set of standard connectivity interfaces including ETH AVB controller.
