Contest Brief

<Overview>
Please collect product information on vehicles or service information that have or will have the technologies described in the “Technology Description” section below.

<Technology Description>
This technology is related to OTA (Over The Air), which is a wirelessly updating the software installed in a vehicle.

When updating software installed in a vehicle, it is necessary to notify the user of the influence of the software update and request an approval from the user. The influence of a software update depends on the number of storage areas in non-volatile memory where the software downloaded from the server is installed. Therefore, there is a need to request user approval at a time that is appropriate for the number of non-volatile memory storage areas to be included in the update target.

To solve this problem, this technology requests the approval of the user before the update data is installed in the storage area of the non-volatile memory of the update target when there is only one storage area of non-volatile memory. When the non-volatile memory mounted on the update target has two storage areas, the approval of the user is requested after the update data is installed in the storage area that is not a target to be read, but before the storage area where the update data is installed is activated as the target to be read. Please search for this technology in this contest.


<<NOTICE>> The target car brands in this search are limited to US, European, Chinese, and South Korean brands.
