Movimento Launches Automotive OTA Platform with Diagnostics

Movimento Group, which specializes in automotive software, introduced an Over-the-Air (OTA) Platform for automated updates of car electronics, remote vehicle diagnostics and in-vehicle cybersecurity.

Movimento said its OTA delivers multiple benefits to automotive OEMs and Tier-1 module manufacturers as well as to vehicle owners, including legacy vehicles. The Movimento OTA platform is able to intelligently assess vehicle status before installing software updates, ensuring that data is transferred only when it is safe to reliably do so. This special bi-directional data-gathering capability reports vehicle diagnostics, prognostics and enables preventative analytics, which lets car makers react in real time to their customers and can provide data to third-party companies for insurance and other purposes.  The company also noted that it is participating in European trials for self-parking cars.

"The driverless cars of tomorrow are unbelievably complex but they are definitely coming," explained Movimento Group CEO Ben Hoffman.  "A Boeing Dreamliner 787 now has 15 million lines of code but there will be ten times more in autonomous cars when they arrive."
