The golden era of mobile internet has universalized the cellphone as definition of a mobile terminal. Diving into the age of intelligence, global investors are hunting for the next mobile ecosystem. A wave of avant garde technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing and big data are ushering an era of smart connectivity, and anticipated to nurture another mobile terminal after cellphone.With Chinese Huawei plotting to release its Alpha S on April 17, Xiaomi declaring a $10-billion investment in smart cars in March, and even whispers of U.S. Apple debuting its iCar this September, one couldn’t help but wonder why these giants are coincidentally targeting the same pie? Could the smart car be the next mobile terminal after the smartphone?
A detailed guide explaining over-the-air software and firmware updates as well as the status of each EV manufacturers current capabilities.
Prediction 8: Investors are more concerned about R&D, technology, FOTA. The most important components of new energy vehicles are motor, electric control, battery, and intelligent experience, and the amount of investment in R&D will directly affect the future of car companies. The more car companies invest in R&D, the more patents and achievements they can obtain, which is also more conducive to their future sustainable development. New car makers are choosing the pure electric route, and old traditional car companies are iterating engine technology while starting the electrification transformation. In terms of sales concentration, the market share of the top 15 in China has reached 77.5 percent. Compared to 2019, the top 15 car companies in 2020 have also increased their sales share of the overall market by 3 percentage points.
"Remote iteration (in automotive) is not a very common thing. We're used to using our iPhones and think remote upgrades are common. But in FOTA in the automotive sector, there are only two companies in the world that can do it, one is NIO and the other is Tesla."
Carrying out software updates on our smartphones is a process we are all familiar with nowadays. On one hand, we expect the manufacturers to keep their operating systems up to date. On the other hand, we expect the same from app developers with regard to their apps. What’s more, the process of updating a software should be easy and, at best, require a simple tap of a button. So, why should this be any different when it comes to IoT devices? Let’s take a look at what over-the-air software updates in the IoT are all about.
Where the relocation of application intelligence from a client-side device to a centralized cloud sounds so much like a good idea that telecommunications engineers begin to ponder: Is this something we could have been doing with every mobile or embedded device all along?
吉利星瑞发布首次FOTA升级 打造“OTA生态计划”! 据介绍，“OTA”即空中下载技术，通过网络自动下载升级包、自动升级，经移动通信的接口实现对软件进行远程管理，实现现有功能/性能优化(BUG修复)、新功能推送等，通常多应用于手机、电脑等电子产品上。随着汽车新四化的推进和互联网大数据的快速发展，OTA技术也逐渐渗透到汽车行业，成为汽车高度智能化的必然趋势，开启了汽车不断成长的“生命通道”。汽车OTA又分为SOTA和FOTA两个不同“段位”。SOTA通常指软件升级，比如车载导航、娱乐应用、人机交互等车机功能，可以理解为手机里APP的更新。而FOTA则是指系统固件更新，可实现包括底盘悬挂、辅助驾驶、车身控制、信息娱乐等整车系统级别功能的全面更新。
600天35次大版本迭代，蔚来 FOTA 背后的故事! 每次 FOTA升级平均涉及到了 20 个 ECU 的刷新。此外，单个 ECU 的刷新成功率达到了99.98%。
第三代哈弗H6 可整车FOTA升级! 当大众、丰田这样的“大集团”,开始深度参与电动化、智能化变革的时候,趋势走向已经越来越明朗了——智能化时代降临,“机械集合体”是基础,芯片、传感器、电子电器相关的零部件越来越多,汽车具备了“可升级”的能力。也就是说,汽车不再是“交付即终点”的产品,而变成了可迭代可进化的新智能终端。对于品牌来说,需要差异化体验做品牌支撑。所以,当电动化层面的机械硬件逐渐趋同的时候,更需要在智能化领域建立新的技术壁垒,这就不得不说到FOTA。
“They really were on the right path, especially with the introduction of the Prius, and they still talk about climate change,” said Margo T. Oge, former director of the EPA’s Office of Transportation Air Quality. “But they’re fighting policies for electric vehicles across the globe, and that’s hurting the effort of policymakers in setting any ambitious measures.”

In the past, when we upgraded our vehicles, we needed to update them through the OBD interface. The vehicles are more like mobile phones in the era of functional machines, only for commuting. Later, OTA technology gradually developed into automobiles, from the initial simple T-Box upgrade to the upgrade of car entertainment system and map navigation, especially the pure electric vehicles that appeared in recent years, all claiming to have OTA capabilities. This contrasts the weakness of fuel vehicles in this regard, and many people even think that OTA is just the specialty of electric vehicles.
A FOTA update event refers to downloading a new firmware within the car ECU, sent from a firmware server located in cloud via a wireless channel such as WiFi/ BLE/GPRS. The FOTA upgrade could include replacing a specific firmware image within a ECU’s Flash memory or adding juts a patch to an already existing firmware image to effect the required changes in the or ECU’s FLASH.
The advent of the connected car age will profoundly affect the automotive industry, not least in the relationship between automakers and car users when data comes into play. Whoever controls the data will control a new form of relationship with car users, with the promise of reaping the resulting financial rewards. So how do OEMs ensure that their current customer relationships carry through to this always-on, data-focused environment?
Recent years have seen the world’s telecoms giants take progressively bigger steps into the mobility ecosystem, with connected services, autonomous vehicle (AV) development and smart city applications all dependent on their networks. The gradual onset of 5G connectivity will further enshrine the role of these companies in the sector: with connected, autonomous, shared and electric (CASE) megatrends transforming the automotive business, automakers will be acutely aware that one day, fast and reliable connection speeds will be just as important as a vehicle’s driving performance on the road.

As part of a project to support urban autonomous vehicle transportation, the city of Jacksonville, Florida will test the autonomous Olli shuttle fitted with Goodyear’s innovative 3D printed airless tires. The tire giant teamed up with Local Motors, creators of the first 3D printed electric shuttle; Beep, an autonomous mobility technologies provider; and the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), in what they are calling the first airless tire on autonomous shuttles for in-field use. This new partnership will make electric transportation even more sustainable as part of the JTA’s mission to transform and modernize the existing people-mover public system in the city center.
Les véhicules hybrides se préparaient à assurer un long interrègne, celui de la transition entre le tout-thermique et le tout-électrique, mais l’accélération de la course au zéro émission risque d’en réduire singulièrement la durée. L’objectif affiché mi-juillet par Bruxelles (réduction de 55 % du CO2 émis au kilomètre par les voitures neuves d’ici à 2030, avant le bannissement du moteur thermique en 2035) fait de cette technologie un enjeu central de la transformation de l’industrie automobile.
A foundational technology in autonomous vehicles, lidar is steadily making its way into a broader range of robots thanks to plummeting prices. Case in point, a company called Seoul Robotics just launched a ready-to-go, plug-and-play lidar perception system that can be deployed out of the box. Lidar, which was cost-prohibitive for most applications as little as five years ago, may be the key to unlocking a world in which robots take to the streets en masse. But for that to happen, developers need not only the hardware but the software designed for easy integration.
Concept cars are not always meant to become a reality. Sometimes they are just there to showcase what could one day be possible and few makers in the business have concept cars as impressive as Renault.
