eSyncTM Alliance and Autoware Foundation Never Leave to Boost Autonomous Vehicle Software Deployment
Fremont, CA: The automotive industry has undergone a significant transformation in recent years. More software is being added to vehicles, and there are more electric and self-driving vehicles in production and on the road.
The eSync™ Alliance and the Autoware Foundation have created a joint workgroup to explore how over-the-air (OTA) updates and data gathering can be integrated into the software stack for the next generation of autonomous vehicles, on the basis of eSync's secure, bi-directional data pipeline. Autoware is the first open-source "all-in-one" software for self-driving vehicles.
"OTA updates and data gathering can accelerate autonomous vehicle software stack development, creating highly efficient learning loops, that enable rapid incorporation of real-time vehicle data for the improvement of in-car software," remarked Mike Gardner, Executive Director at the eSync Alliance. "The integration of a standardized OTA platform such as eSync, into Autoware's open-source autonomous vehicle software provides significant benefits to developers and end customers alike."
The Autoware Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports open-source self-driving mobility projects. In addition, the foundation works to connect corporate R&D and academic research, resulting in a powerful synergy in the development of viable autonomous driving technology.
The eSync software platform establishes a secure, bidirectional data path between the cloud and any number of electronic end devices installed within a vehicle. It can communicate with any ECU or smart sensor in the car, provide OTA software updates, and handle data collection across multiple operating systems and networks/busses. Using eSync opens up new avenues for automakers and Tier-1 suppliers to improve their products and offer added value to their customers.
