Arynga’s Intelligent Vehicle Software/Firmware Management System: CarSync™ 1.0
CarSync 1.0, comprised of three separate modules including the CarSync Release Package Tool (CRPT), CarSync Management System (CMS), and the CarSync In-Vehicle Gateway (CIVG), is an end‐to‐end configuration management solution for maintaining and distributing software/firmware updates to vehicle Electronic Control Units (ECUs).
The CarSync update process is done remotely through a secure, controlled, efficient, and robust methodology capable of servicing a large number of cars at once. First, the CRPT receives and packages update files using Arynga’s proprietary DIFF engine. Verified and secure files are then sent over-the-air to the CMS, responsible for configuration management processes and execution, and then to the CIVG, for final validation, verification, and distribution of updates to designated vehicle ECUs.
With CarSync’s robust update methodology, and additional capability to derive useful data analytics, OEMs can ensure the integrity of software throughout the lifetime of a vehicle, subsequently reducing warranty and recall costs caused by software glitches, and improving customer satisfaction through the delivery of a reliable, enhanced, and connected driving experience.
This functionality is integrated with the Tizen 1.0 Release for the Intel Atom based NexCom Telematics Development Kit (model: NDiS 166). Additionally this functionality is integrated and tested on Tizen 2.x, 3.x (NDiS 166), QNX (Freescale iMX6), Ubuntu 12.x (Freescale iMX6 and x86)
