Total worldwide automaker cost savings for over-the-air update events are forecasted to grow from $2.7 billion in 2015 to over $35 billion by 2022
Airbiquity announced a partnership with Arynga to enable remote software update campaigns for connected car systems and components from the cloud. The ability to plan and execute cloud-based software update campaigns will provide significant financial benefits to automakers in the years ahead as vehicles are increasingly engineered to receive them, in addition to vehicle enhancements for consumers purchasing connected cars.
Automakers are just beginning to realize the significant opportunities for leveraging remote software updates to achieve multi-million dollar cost reductions for software related recalls, achieving faster recall compliance times, and eliminating the consumer burden of bringing vehicles to dealers for repairs. Total worldwide automaker cost savings for over-the-air update events are forecasted to grow from $2.7 billion in 2015 to over $35 billion by 2022, according to IHS. Automakers will also gain the ability to proactively deliver software updates that remedy security breaches, as well as enhance vehicle performance, features, and services contributing to post-purchase customer satisfaction and brand loyalty.
Airbiquity and Arynga are hosting meetings during CES 2016 and the GENIVI 2016 Showcase Event @ Trump the week of January 4th to discuss the benefits of cloud-based connected car software updates and provide demonstrations of the initial phase of the companies’ collaboration.
