The promise of truly connected cars rests not just on connectivity, but on the exchange of data between the car and other devices and services in a simple, robust and secure manner. The race is on as key automotive stakeholders continuously enhance software and integrate new technology. Additionally, some OEM's and industry groups are looking to open source technology to handle authentication, authorization, discovery and data exchange between services in a sparely connected peer-to-peer transportation network.

This webinar will explore the need for common communications channel, including the advantages of open source software in rapidly developing intellectual property and encouraging collaboration towards automotive connectivity solutions. Matt Jones, director of Future Technology at Jaguar Land Rover, will showcase the Remote Vehicle Interaction (RVI) project, an emerging software-based technology essential to the connected car, including remote data logging, secure software over-the-air (SOTA) updating and smartphone application control of certain in-car features.
