Trustonic announced that its security platform has been chosen by Tier 1 automotive service provider, Megatronix, to secure its intelligent operating system, SmartMega OS+, which brings next generation connected services to smart vehicles. The first vehicle model to integrate SmartMega OS+, the Hycan 007, is now on sale across China.

With a predicted surge in demand for connected vehicles, automotive makers are under pressure to provide enhanced features to vehicle users, while guaranteeing security, privacy and data protection. Megatronix’s SmartMega OS+ software has been designed to ensure the deployment and regular upgrade of new, customisable in-vehicle services to enable secure, reliable user experiences. SmartMega OS+ provides real-time cloud-based features which connect the vehicles to the outside world, and protects communications from the Telematic Control Unit (TCU) all the way through to the connected cloud.

In the era of software-defined hardware, whether the operating system of intelligent car can bring extraordinary experience to users has become the biggest factor of a product’s success. Hycan 007 is not only the first product of GAC NIO New Energy Automotive Technology, but also the first product launching of Megatronix. Hycan 007’s futuristic appearance and the leading intelligence fully demonstrate a combination of technology and design.
