BOSTON, MA, September 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The Industry IoT ConsortiumÂ® (IIC â¢) has announced the IIC Over-The-Air (OTA) Update Benchmark to Show Manufacturers How deploy, update and replace software on a fleet of vehicles or remote devices. The test bench can perform updates from almost anywhere, limiting updates to what is required and authorized, and ensures the safety and security of passengers by focusing on system reliability: security , safety, integrity, confidentiality and resilience.
The Automotive OTA Updates Test Bed provides real-world validation for critical parts of an automobile, including software and security updates, in-car communications, aftermarket updates. -sales and new services, âsaid Howard Kradjel, IIC’s vice president, Industrial Programs. âManufacturers can also apply the lessons learned from the Automotive OTA Updates benchmark to medical equipment, industrial machinery, and other devices. ”
With the Go, Kart !, a replica of a fully functional connected vehicle, as the base platform, the test bench integrates access technologies, security and applications and services to deliver software updates. . IIC based the Automotive OTA Updates Testbed on the Open Service Gateway Initiative (OSGi), a Java framework for the development and deployment of modular software programs and libraries, as an on-board gateway between a vehicle and the cloud. The test bench uses a variety of commercially available connectivity technologies, such as 5G, Wi-Fi, and Li-Fi.
âThe test bench introduced Li-Fi as a complementary wireless communication option for OTA updates and general V2X communication to address RF challenges such as signal interference, jamming, and limited capacity. Said Dirar Hakeem, co-founder of AASA and one of the test beds. tracks. âThe combination of wireless technologies ensures stable OTA updates, vehicle-to-all (V2X) communication and efficient operations. “
The test bed enables manufacturers to manage the entire DevOps cycle of an automobile, from development and testing to deployment and operations, mitigating the cybersecurity risks inherent in IT integration and of OT. âIIC Automotive’s OTA Updates Test Bed seamlessly bridges the gap between IT and OT,â said Dr. James J. Hunt, CTO of aicas and one of the responsible for the IIC test bench. “It shows manufacturers how to produce efficient and reliable electrified and autonomous automobiles for the future.”
