Sierra Wireless and Movimento unite on OTA vehicle software management

June 07, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Sierra Wireless and Movimento have partnered to provide automotive OEMs with an integrated solution to streamline vehicle software installation and updates.

Sierra Wireless’s device-to-cloud solution and Movimento’s Over the Air (OTA) technology together provide what the companies claim to be the industry’s first commercially available cloud-based platform to maintain connected cars. 

All vehicles have numerous software programs running on a network of Electronic Control Units (ECUs) that need to be individually managed and maintained. The Sierra Wireless-Movimento solution allows automotive OEMs to update software for all ECUs simultaneously over-the-air. When an automaker needs to upgrade a vehicle’s systems, it’s now as simple as logging into the dashboard over a secure network and selecting the appropriate update campaign. 

According to data collected by J.D. Power through its SafetyIQ program, 189 separate software recalls have been issued in the past five years, impacting more than 13 million vehicles. With the Sierra Wireless-Movimento solution, these recalls could be easily and efficiently resolved over-the-air, and without missing any vehicles.

Movimento’s software update client runs on the Legato Linux Embedded Application Framework available on Sierra Wireless 4G automotive modules. Through the Sierra Wireless AirVantage cloud platform, the Movimento solution enables automakers to seamlessly upgrade all vehicle software.
