Delphi is building over-the-air software suite for automakers

Remote updates for your car are coming. Much like your phone projects are now in the works to provide you vehicle with any necessary updates or patches that can be sent remotely. These changes could be expected to be here as soon as 2020 and would definitely be an upgrade compared to the current system.

Key Takeaways:

  • The cars consumers are already driving could soon get over-the-air software updates.
  • Delphi Automotive is building software to help automakers catch up to the electric-car maker, which designs its vehicles with the ability to be updated remotely.
  • Delphi is leveraging the expertise of several upstart companies it acquired in recent years to boost carmakers’ technological capabilities.

“Delphi’s over-the-air software capabilities could be built into new car models by 2020 if negotiations with carmakers go as planned.”
