“Movimento has worked in the trenches with car manufacturers and Tier-1 suppliers for over ten years," said Mahbubul Alam, CTO/CMO, Movimento. “Today, we are building an ecosystem of OTA update services for cars including software Over-the-Air (SOTA) and firmware Over-the-Air (FOTA), security updates and data services. Movimento updates three million vehicles per year, which amounts to 5.5 vehicles every minute.”
The Movimento OTA platform and ecosystem not only enables delivery and installation of software updates, but also lets auto OEMs continuously improve and optimize features and functionality based on actual usage through the data collection capabilities. This shortens the development cycle and the time to market for new features in the era of the software-defined car.
