Members of the eSync Alliance are primarily tier-one manufacturers such as Alpine, Excelfore, HELLA, Molex and ZF and others. The alliance is an open industry initiative founded to build a secure, vendor-independent path for end-to-end OTA updating and data services for the networked vehicle through a global network of cooperating suppliers.
"With the release of version 1.0 of the Compliance Specifications, each member of the eSync Alliance can now develop eSync-compliant components of the architecture - whether server, client or agent - that can be easily, quickly and reliably integrated into a complete eSync platform“, explained Rick Kreifeldt, Executive Director of the eSync Alliance.
To significantly reduce the rising cost of recalls, an OTA platform must reach all the ECUs and sensors of a modern car. This is the crux of the matter: the time and financial costs of using proprietary technologies are simply too high - the industry needs a standardized OTA data pipeline, as offered by the specifications of the eSync Alliance.
