Automotive OTA solutions

Continuously improve vehicle functions and react fast to security issues through automotive OTA updates

A connected, but not updatable vehicle is a huge cybersecurity threat. Therefore, vehicles need to be updatable over the air. Apart from security, consumers are used to the short innovation cycles as offered by their smartphones and computers. That is why automotive over-the-air updates are becoming the method of choice for distributing everything from infotainment system features to operating system security patches and ECU updates or configuration changes.

The task of updating critical vehicle functions places high demands on the security and reliability of the processes used for this purpose. Signal-based communication in Classic AUTOSAR has been replaced with service-oriented communication in Adaptive AUTOSAR. With this system architecture, new applications can be integrated into the entire system more easily.

In connection with OTA updates, Adaptive AUTOSAR provides key functions as standard for purposefully updating functions and components. While Classic AUTOSAR has always required a full update of the application software, Adaptive AUTOSAR supports differential updates.
