Over-the-Air Updates

Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates enable the automotive industry to easily and conveniently import new functionalities into vehicles already sold and to efficiently carry out maintenance measures.

The AQI has examined the current worldwide activities regarding OTA updates, considered legal requirements, developed a holistic OTA target process and validated the process model by simulating various use cases.

The VDA working group "Software Updates/OTA" was supported scientifically by the AQI. The resulting VDA volume "Recall Management via Over-the-Air Updates" is currently in the yellow-edition phase.
