Airbiquity®, a global leader of connected vehicle services, announced its expansion into selected non-automotive vehicle-based markets to generate new revenue streams. As businesses increasingly integrate software into their products and leverage data for new services, over-the-air (OTA) software and data management solutions are critical for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to keep products up-to-date and optimize performance. As a pioneer in automotive telematics software and cloud-based connected vehicle service delivery, Airbiquity is uniquely positioned to apply its OTAmatic® software technology and technical integration expertise to other markets that require sophisticated OTA capabilities.
OTAmatic, Airbiquity’s OTA software and data management platform, was initially developed for the automotive market. But the core OTAmatic platform can also be adapted for use in many other vehicle-based markets—specifically, those that require industrial grade OTA with higher degrees of security and technical integration. Airbiquity is specifically targeting the following markets for its business expansion effort:
- Personal Transportation Vehicles: Scooters, Motorcycles, ATVs
- Materials Handling Vehicles: Warehouse Automation
- Off-Highway Vehicles: Construction, Agriculture, Mining, Forestry
- Other High-Value Devices: Complex Electronic Devices and Systems, Including Autonomous Robotics
“The benefits of automotive OTA are clear: Increased product quality, performance, and operational efficiency. We aim to help non-automotive OEMs efficiently tap into this technology and realize the same benefits by making additional enhancements to our core OTAmatic platform,” said Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and CEO of Airbiquity. “We work with the top automotive OEMs in the world and have always been on the forefront of telematics innovation. This is the perfect time to embrace our innovation roots, leverage our technology and integration expertise, and branch out into new markets with the OTAmatic software and data management platform.”
