OTA connected vehicle technology targets fleet management

January 11, 2018 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Excelfore has demonstrated its eSync system in conjunction with ZF at CES 2018 – showing how the eSync over-the-air (OTA) platform for updates and diagnostic data retrieval gives operators greater control over their automotive fleets, providing secure mechanisms for continuous improvements in fleet efficiency.

Major fleet operators increasingly build upon OEM-provided vehicles to meet their own specifications. The eSync platform handels OTA updates and data retrieval for the many electronic devices in modern fleet vehicles, and delivers a single mechanism to handle multiple vehicle types across an entire fleet.

The demonstration shows how a fleet operator can use the eSync OTA system to perform updates on the various models that comprise a fleet of many thousands of vehicles. In the demo, the operator can review and improve the efficiency and performance of particular vehicle models within the fleet, and can use the same OTA process for predicting and resolving potential security issues before they become problems.

The eSync system is a cloud platform for secure transactions with the electronic end devices in a vehicle. It can deliver and update software and firmware over-the-air, and can collect diagnostics and telematics data from end devices in the vehicle.

Modern connected cars may incorporate dozens, or even hundreds, of software-driven sensors and controllers. Automakers and fleet operators increasingly seek the ability to update software over-the-air, to avoid recall and service costs, to provide security patches, to improve vehicle performance and efficiency, and even to add new features or enhancements. However, to date, most systems that are available to serve the automotive market are single-company proprietary offerings.
