Platform enables car OEMs to rapidly implement new services and features into vehicles
EPAM Systems, Inc. (NYSE: EPAM), a leading digital transformation services and product engineering company, today announced a new “AosEdge” vehicle-to-cloud (V2C) platform that represents the next phase in the evolution of connected cars. The AosEdge platform, created in collaboration with Renesas Electronics Corporation, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, provides a more efficient way to deliver in-vehicle software and simplifies how different software elements operate within the same environment, making it possible for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to develop true software defined vehicles. The platform combines EPAM’s digital platform expertise with Renesas’ embedded automotive software technology to provide a complete software infrastructure – from installation to operation – for vehicles connecting to the cloud.
“We’re excited to expand what’s possible in the connected automotive experience by offering a platform that helps automakers and third-party OEMs to seamlessly and securely interact with one another to deliver compelling, much desired digital vehicle experiences,” said Alex Agizim, CTO, Automotive & Embedded Systems at EPAM. “As software releases and updates for vehicles become easier, we look forward to the many unique ideas that will be introduced to the automotive market. When the vehicle is software, the process of upgrading is streamlined—making it easier to keep pace with innovation and the evolving consumer appetite for next-gen digital experiences.”
The development of the AosEdge platform stems from the growing need to create V2C platforms that are as reliable and seamless as today’s smartphones. Due to complex vehicle connectivity requirements, most cars are unable to automatically receive software updates after they have come off the manufacturing line, making it difficult for these vehicles to take advantage of the latest safety features and services. With the new platform, these critical software updates will be delivered using a cloud-to-edge computing platform, similar to the way smartphones receive over-the-air (OTA) updates via the cloud.
“We developed the V2C platform by partnering with EPAM and leveraging our experience in helping OEMs around the world transform their E/E architectures,” said Takeshi Fuse, Head of Business Development and Marketing, Automotive Solution Business Unit at Renesas. “We are confident that this platform will contribute to the growth of the automotive industry and our society by making people’s lives easier.”
