HERE Technologies has expanded the capabilities of HERE OTA Connect, its over-the air solution for updating connected vehicles and IoT devices.
Now the solution can not only manage remote updates and distribute software and firmware, but will also automatize remote diagnostics and reduce error fix time.
The technology closes the loop by retrieving diagnostic data from the vehicle or device, analyzing that data in the cloud and responding with automatic over-the-air updates using real-time location insights.
HERE Open Location Platform (OLP):
This advancement is made possible through the solution’s integration with the HERE Open Location Platform (OLP), the platform for big data analytics and creation of new data services centered on location intelligence.
The OLP targets the biggest problem in the development of new location services: data is often siloed and incompatible, which makes collecting and combining data strenuous and time-consuming.
The OTA integration with the OLP creates a process wherein the connected car or device’s data is collected and given a location context, providing powerful insights to guide future actions. Use cases include predictive and preventative maintenance and remote diagnostics, as well as the creation of situation-specific, on-demand and location services.
The OTA Connect and OLP integration enhances the ability of a manufacturer to troubleshoot and improve efficiency in real time.
HERE OTA Connect aligns with GDPR requirements and incorporates security framework Uptane, created by Advanced Telematic Systems (ATS) which HERE acquired in January 2018.
