Airbiquity®, a global leader in connected vehicle services, today announced a partnership with Tessolve, a leading hardware platform company for silicon and system productization for various market segments, including automotive, motorcycles, scooters, industrial IoT, semiconductor, avionics, and defense.
The two companies have pre-integrated Airbiquity’s OTAmatic® software management platform and LOGmatic™ data logging platform with Tessolve’s TERA family of devices in order to provide industry-leading sophisticated application gateways that can be easily integrated into vehicles. Making both companies’ solutions available together drastically reduces the complexity, expense, and time required for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to evaluate, develop, and deploy sophisticated connected vehicles that include full-vehicle OTA software updates and flexible data logging.
Airbiquity’s OTAmatic software management platform securely orchestrates and automates software update campaigns while meeting the unique and stringent requirements of the automotive industry. Airbiquity’s LOGmatic data logging platform is a simple to integrate and flexible to use offering that allows secure, configurable, dynamic data logging and transmission with ECU protection and minimized resource utilization.
Tessolve’s TERA is a compact, high-performance application gateway based on the S32G274A SMARC SoC targeted for vehicle networking and industrial applications with a customizable development and deployment platform and is designed to be automotive-compliant. A new member of the TERA family is the OBD Dongle. Dongle is a small form factor IoT 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.”
“The embedded team at Tessolve has been focusing on creating path-breaking forward-looking engineering solutions. TERA is one such 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. 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. 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,” said Kiran kumar Nagendra, AVP Embedded Systems for Tessolve.
