From “function car” to “smart car”, vehicle industry is going through a fierce reform.
Gartner report predicted that to 2020, there will be 25,000,000 vehicles running on the road. This promotes development of new car-using service and automatic drive function.
Shanghai ADUPS is a supplier of FOTA system upgrade service for mobile phone, laptop, smart car, intelligent home furnishing, and smart wearing. The FOTA（Firmware Over-The-Air）is a technology that supports hardware upgrade service for devices have link-web function. The users acquire the intelligent terminal system upgrading package through the Internet, and upgrade by using FOTA cloud to realize the repair and optimize of system.
If the vehicle links to the Internet, it will face many challenges. The most significant one is information security. During this MWC, ADUPS together with 360 vehicle security lab bring out a series of “vehicle OTA protection on the entire Internet” project. This project can test the attack and repair the flaw remotely by patching it, and to achieve system repairing and optimizing.
On the MWC2017 exhibition, both sides associate with each other to display the imitation that when the car instrument panel is attacking by hacker, the internal FOTA remote upgrading can realize delivering solution methods to all cars which may be attack. This tech reaches the protection aim on entire Internet, realizes all progress of vehicle information security dynamic protection and catches numbers of scene audience’s attention.
“With the rapidly development of vehicle technology, new energy and intelligence Internet-linking become the tendency of vehicle industry. To the developing industry, we believe the ability of updating-system function like Tesla must be the premise and base of this field.” ADUPS’s Internet-of-Vehicle business unit department manager Ray Yanan Rui has a strong faith in OTA can become standard equipment of vehicle in the future.
Shanghai ADUPS built in 2012, cumulated a lot of OTA upgrading technology experience and numbers of clients. “Through phone service we accumulated more than 70,000,000 users’ data. The third part OTA occupancy also reached 70％.” Ray said that this also means OTA business gradually becomes saturated at the phone market.
“Vehicles is the next large market.” Ray point out the car electronic application net, “vehicle demands more upgrade parts than phone. Such as communication part, car information,entertainment products, and etc. These products need to upgrade termly for linking to the Internet. The so said all-round car upgrade, actually, is to upgrade the corresponding module and section.”

The vehicle factory and first supplier realize the relationship between tendency of digitization and technology collaboration, software capability and customize. These will become global vehicle industry development guidance. However, there is no perfect security in information field. This is the main impetus of the Internet safe business 360 chooses to collaborate with vehicle industry and vehicle information business to set an intelligent net-linking vehicle lab.
