The eSync Alliance announces that it has added its 10th member, R Systems, a provider of engineering services for technology, data, and artificial intelligence (AI)/analytics.

The eSync Alliance is a multi-company initiative to standardize end-to-end over-the-air (OTA) updating and data gathering, enabling ‘whole car’ communications with all any number of electronic devices in the connected car.

R Systems becomes the 10th member of the eSync Alliance, an automotive trade association promoting a multi-company standard for automotive OTA updates and data gathering for the connected car.

The Alliance is based around eSync, a multi-vendor OTA platform of server and embedded software solutions, 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, and collect real-time operational data from in-car devices.

Leveraging a global network of co-operating suppliers, the eSync system is able to effectively prevent increasingly costly and inconvenient vehicle recalls, while simultaneously creating new opportunities for carmakers to remotely enhance vehicle software and features on vehicles in the field.
