Airbiquity has announced a technology partnership with Tessolve delivering a pre-integrated hardware and software platform for secure and ‘sophisticated’ Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates and data logging. The two companies combine Airbiquity’s OTAmatic software management platform and LOGmatic data logging platform with Tessolve’s TERA family of devices to provide application gateways that can be integrated into vehicles.

The collaborative offering helps streamline the process, minimising the complexity, cost and time associated with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) assessing, creating, and implementing advanced connected vehicle systems. This includes comprehensive OTA software.

Airbiquity‘s OTAmatic software management platform orchestrates and automates software update campaigns while meeting the unique and stringent requirements of the automotive industry. Airbiquity’s LOGmatic data logging platform is simple to integrate and flexible to use offering that allows secure, configurable, dynamic data logging and transmission with electronic control unit (ECU) protection and minimised resource utilisation.

Tessolve’s TERA is a compact application gateway based on the S32G274A SMARC security operations centre (SoC) targeted for vehicle networking and industrial applications with a customisable development and deployment platform and has been designed to be automotive-compliant.

A new member of the TERA line is the OBD Dongle, a small form factor IoT (Internet of Things) device capable of connecting the vehicle to the cloud and running high-performance edge computing.

“Airbiquity has always designed our products to have industry-leading features and functionality, but also modularity, flexibility, and ease of integration,” said Keefe Leung, vice president of product management for Airbiquity. “Making our products available on Tessolve’s TERA gateways allows companies to quickly enable software-defined vehicles. The TERA Dongle is particularly compelling due to its small size, high computing capabilities, and standard OBD-II port interface, resulting in an ideal platform to quickly evaluate and develop both OTAmatic’s and LOGmatic’s full-vehicle OTA or data logging capabilities.”

“TERA is a solution targeted towards vehicle markets, delivering edge AI capabilities on an intelligent box capable of collecting data and performing number crunching using a powerful S32G2 SoC from NXP,” says Kiran Kumar Nagendra, AVP embedded systems for Tessolve. “TERA connects vehicle data to the cloud through 4G/5G or Wi-Fi networks which opens opportunities to bring dynamic software over-the-air upgrade capabilities to the vehicle and many more possibilities to reality with it.

Nagendra added that in this direction, “Tessolve proudly partners with Airbiquity to bring vehicle upgrade and data logging features on the TERA family of wirelessly connected edge AI capable devices. This partnership with Airbiquity strengthens our offerings where we bring innovative and unique engineering solutions to market.”
