Secure OTA updates for automotive processors, by ST & Airbiquity

February 21, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
STMicroelectronics and Airbiquity, a provider of connected vehicle services, are demonstrating integration of Airbiquity's software update management service into ST's telematics and connectivity processors.

The demonstration features Airbiquity's Over-The-Air (OTA) Software & Data Management offering integrated into the ST Telemaco3 Evaluation Board (EVB). Presenting how the technology protects consumers, their automotive investment, and manufacturers, the demo highlights the interoperability between the Airbiquity cloud-based service and the on-board ST Telemaco3 EVB platform in a variety of software-update campaign scenarios and typical Original Equipment Manufacturers' (OEM) OTA use cases.

 

ST's Telemaco family of devices provides high bandwidth connectivity (1 Gb/sec ETH) and processing capability to handle wireless data management typically required for automotive telematics applications. It can handle the control of the in-vehicle CAN bus through an independent and isolated Cortex-M subsystem running a dedicated real-time OS. With its flexible memory and CPU cores configurations, the Telemaco processors allow implementing scalable systems throughout the wide variety of car connectivity applications requiring rich Linux OS and other Posix OSs.

 

Airbiquity's Software & Data Management offering is designed to efficiently orchestrate and automate highly targeted, scalable, and secure multi-ECU software updates and data collection for connected vehicles. The solution features a back-end management capability enabling campaign targeting, configuration, and approvals, and is fully scalable to accommodate the geographic, volume, and IT hosting requirements of the automotive industry.
