The auto industry is on the cusp of figuring out the business models for connected and intelligent vehicles. There's a general consensus about which services and features are most important to make available today, and an understanding of what it will take to build on them to meet the demands of tomorrow. The ultimate winners will clearly be those that solved complex problems to protect vehicles and entertain passengers. What remains opaque is the impact of meeting the pace of demand with an embedded, outside-vendor solution that bundles infotainment and telematics.

The concept has been widely accepted that each vehicle can be a road-ready node capable of receiving, sending, and acting on information. We're speeding toward fully autonomous capabilities and, whether in-house or with an outside vendor, we're satisfying concerns about vehicles thinking and acting for themselves. We can intuitively and intelligently connect vehicles, data and passengers, and largely do it safely and reliably. Today we can have permanent, real-time connectivity to apps, streaming and storage services, and updates on weather, traffic and news at our fingertips. We can provide remote management of vehicle functionality and services, and we can simultaneously manage realtime data from hundreds of sources. Now there's a closer look at how, and who, controls the data that controls our vehicles.

We're addressing these complex issues and more as our teams connect deeper into the auto community. That includes during the OSGi Community event in October for our presentation on what the powerhouse combo of OSGi and the Realtime Specification for Java continues to provide as a powerful framework for dynamic and open real-time systems and platforms. Also in October, we're at IoT World Congress in Spain to introduce our latest in-vehicle safety contribution: a cyber security solution capable of blocking an attack of the normal functioning of an autonomous vehicle. We hope to see you there!

San Francisco in September: Elevating Java for IoT

Java – the dominant foundation of virtually every networked application – is the future of the IoT. This standard workhorse for enterprise software, web-based content, games and mobile applications, is growing as the preferred language for robots, industrial control systems, automotive telematics, and more. The Realtime Specification for Java has been updated to reflect how Java is being used for performance and measurement of embedded sensors, remote device supervision and control, security, and more.

We will introduce the blueprint to the Java Community Process on September 13. The RTSJ is available for review on our website and as the JCP's JSR 282 for PRFAB. If you would like to meet and learn more about the RTSJ or aicas during the week of September 13, in Silicon Valley, please contact us.

Critical Solutions

Combining RTSJ and OSGi in Ludwigsburg

While OSGi offers an intuitive solution for remotely updating and reconfiguring applications and components, Realtime Java offers a standardized programmability layer for applications with strict execution and performance requirements. Are these combined technologies sufficient to attend the needs of dynamic platforms and critical infrastructures?

We're exploring this and more during the October 21-24 OSGi Community event in Germany. Join us for a demonstration of what the technologies can provide as a framework for dynamic and open realtime systems and platforms. Contact us to learn more and for details, visit OSGi.

Autonomous and Secure

Thwarting an AV Hack: aicas @IoT Solutions World Congress

We're bringing our latest realtime, connected vehicle solutions to IoT World Congress. Join us as we introduce the successful testbed featuring aicas technologies to protect autonomous vehicle control during a cyberattack.

Together with TÜV SÜD, LHP Engineering Services, Xilinx, and National Instruments, we'll use a simulated connected, electric car to demonstrate how the solution protects functions like braking, steering, and speed during a cyberattack.

Stay tuned for more details about our VM software and demonstration in Barcelona, October 29 and contact us for more details.
