Solution For Secure OTA Software Update For The Connected Car


Renesas and Airbiquity are equipping automakers for the upcoming autonomous-driving era with a secure, high-performance automotive solution with over-the-air (OTA) capabilities. The solution caters to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), vehicle-to-everything (V2X), and automated driving applications of the future.

The solution will integrate Airbiquity’s OTAmatic cloud-based OTA software and data management solution with Renesas’  R-Car H3 automotive chip.

The combined solution based on the R-Car H3 system-on-chip (SoC) is compliant with the ISO 26262 safety functionality (FuSa) standard.

Renesas claimed that its R-Car H3 chip provides advanced cognitive computing capabilities and computing performance that can accurately process large volumes of information from vehicle sensors in real-time, making it ideal for driving safety support systems.

“It’s clear that future connected vehicles will require a combination of sophisticated on-board processing power and the ability to securely perform software updates remotely” the companies said.

The combined solution is designed to fulfill the demand for an automotive-grade solution comprised of high-performance telematics processors that is backed by a robust OTA software update and data management solution”, said Renesas.

“Airbiquity OTA service delivery is a perfect complement to Renesas R-Car SoC processor technology for the autonomous-driving era,” Craig Johnson, Director, Automotive Advanced Systems Innovation Department, Automotive System Business Division at Renesas. “Bringing the two together enables an efficient, secure, high-performance solution to power the next wave of advanced vehicle features for automakers and automotive suppliers around the world.”
