They do this by harnessing live microcontroller and sensor data to enhance driver experiences. Moreover, it enables OTA updates of mixed-criticality and facilitates remote diagnostic and end-user commands.

Key enhancements propelled by this alliance include:

  • Rapid deployment of OTA software updates and upgrades, ensuring fleet readiness in an evolving regulatory environment .
  • Enhanced diagnostics for real-time fleet monitoring, predictive maintenance, and streamlined warranty validation processes.
  • Remote diagnostics and troubleshooting to minimize downtime and optimize operational efficiencies.
  • Vehicle health monitoring and analytics to drive proactive maintenance and potentially reduce total cost of ownership.

“Teaming up with Xos aligns seamlessly with our mission to advance connected vehicle technology across diverse mobility spectrums.
