Renesas Electronics Corporation and Airbiquity have developed a secure, high-performance automotive solution with over-the-air (OTA) capabilities, targeting advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), vehicle-to-everything (V2X) and automated driving applications.

The companies are integrating Airbiquity’s OTAmatic cloud-based OTA software and data management service delivery solution on Renesas’ high-performance, low-power R-Car H3 automotive computing platform. The combined solution based on the R-Car H3 system-on-chip (SoC) is compliant with the ISO 26262 safety functionality (FuSa) standard and offers a secure automotive computing platform with targeted and scalable on-demand OTA software update and data management capabilities.

The increasing dependency on software, electronic control units (ECUs), sensors and microprocessors to power emerging autonomous vehicle systems and features — combined with the intricacy and complexity of securely managing OTA software updates and data collection for millions of vehicles simultaneously — has spurred demand for an automotive-grade solution using high-performance telematics processors backed by a robust OTA software update and data management solution.

Airbiquity OTAmatic securely orchestrates and automates multi-ECU OTA campaigns with policy-driven dependency, rollback and recovery; certification, authentication and encryption; dynamic data collection and upgradable analytics; intelligent network selection, data caching and transfer; customized consumer notifications, prompts and consent; and campaign creation, approval, reporting and administration.

OTAmatic can also be deployed via Airbiquity’s Choreo cloud, leading public clouds such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services, or on-premises data centers to best meet automaker and supplier management, security and business needs.

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