With the DSA connected vehicle solution, software updates and configuration can be pushed to the vehicle “over the air” at any time.
The vehicle health status is transmitted over wireless networks to a Connected Vehicle Server, which contains the current configuration of the vehicle together with performance indicators and error codes.
Flash files are reconstructed based on the deltas of the current configuration and an up-to-date configuration matrix. All changes can be applied using the infotainment unit or vehicle connectivity gateway as a diagnostics tester, which performs flash programming and configuration to all ECUs.
With firmware updates over-the-air (FOTA) campaigns no longer require expensive recalls and problems can be proactively corrected in the field. More cars will receive safety-critical updates because customers do not have to spend time taking the car to the workshop.
With over-the-air configuration, it is possible to provide on-demand activation of features based either on additional customer purchases or changes on customer profile.
