The eSync Alliance announces that Faurecia, one of the automotive technology companies, has become its latest member.

The eSync Alliance is a multi-company initiative for end-to-end over-the-air (OTA) updating and data services for the connected car.  The Alliance is based around eSync, a multi-vendor OTA platform of server and embedded software, which provides a secure bi-directional data pipeline between the cloud and electronic end devices in vehicles. eSync can deliver and update software and firmware over-the-air, while collecting real-time operational data from in-car devices. Leveraging a global network of co-operating suppliers, the eSync system can help prevent increasingly costly and inconvenient vehicle recalls, as well as creating new opportunities for carmakers to enhance vehicle software and features on vehicles in the field.
