The French automaker PSA Group and the Chinese telecom company Huawei Technologies have entered into a partnership to develop a secure connected vehicle system. The first services– will include remote vehicle diagnostics, over-the-air software updates, and car-sharing capabilities–will be rolled out next year in Europe and China.
PSA has said in a statement that digital technology makes it possible to deliver new services adapted to individual needs in line with usage patterns but it requires organizing and managing car data security. Therefore the company, rising to the challenge, is developing a global IoT platform in partnership with Huawei, one of the world leaders in information and communication technologies, whose renowned expertise will ensure compliance with the highest regulatory and data security standards.
The new platform, known as the Connected Vehicle Modular Platform (CVMP), will ensure that all digital interactions between the car and the cloud are managed securely while at the same time guaranteeing data integrity, authenticity, and confidentiality.
CVMP will make it possible to introduce new services such as remote on-demand car diagnostics and remote control solutions such as battery charging and pre-heating; over-the-air car software updates, traffic information and navigation; car sharing and corporate fleet management; and customised onboard services such as personal assistant solutions.
