BlackBerry introduces OTA service for automakers, brings push expertise to vehicle telematics
With more and more vehicles featuring telematics and built-in wireless connectivity, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing a new ecosystem emerge around the technology, with M2M specialists providing everything from radios to apps. BlackBerry wants a piece of this pie, and today at the Telematics Detroit conference, the company is showing a new OTA (Over The Air) service for automakers. The solution lets car manufactures manage and deploy software updates to vehicles in the field, and takes advantage of BlackBerry’s push expertise and secure infrastructure. Other capabilities include installing apps on a car’s infotainment system and getting status information on vehicle components. Let’s just hope there’s no service outage in the middle of that ECU update, OK? PR after the break.
