R Systems joins eSync Alliance as 10th member
Important milestone achieved in growing movement to standardize automotive over-the-air updates and data gathering
Silicon Valley, CA, May 14, 2020 – The eSync Alliance announces that it has added its 10th member, R Systems, a global leader in engineering services for technology, data and artificial intelligence (AI)/analytics.
The eSync Alliance is a multi-company initiative to standardize end-to-end over-the-air (OTA) updating and data gathering, enabling ‘whole car’ communications with all any number of electronic devices in the connected car.
Dr. Harsh Verma, VP Global Innovative Research at R Systems, said, “Through our participation in the eSync Alliance we add our contribution to the standardization of the OTA data pipeline, partnering with major automotive suppliers to enable or elevate their digital transformations.”
Rick Kreifeldt, Executive Director at the eSync Alliance, said, “R Systems brings proven engineering expertise and capabilities in AI and analytics that will neatly complement the other members of the Alliance.” He continued, adding, “Passing the ten member threshold is a major step for the eSync Alliance on our journey to create an industry-wide, standardized OTA data pipeline.”
The Alliance is based around eSync, a multi-vendor OTA platform of server and embedded software solutions, which provides a secure bi-directional data pipeline between the cloud and electronic end devices in vehicles. eSync can deliver and update software and firmware over-the-air, and collect real-time operational data from in-car devices.
Leveraging a global network of co-operating suppliers, the eSync system is able to effectively prevent increasingly costly and inconvenient vehicle recalls, while simultaneously creating new opportunities for carmakers to remotely enhance vehicle software and features on vehicles in the field.
