Airbiquity, a leading player in connected vehicle services, has announced the launch of its OTAmatic Vehicle Configurator.

The new product, according to the company, is a tool for defining and managing connected vehicle software. It gives auto manufacturers insight into the ‘exact hardware and software configurations within a vehicle.

Besides, it will also help them manage known combinations of electronic control units (ECUs) and software versions in vehicles, and meet government rules for type certified vehicle systems.

In the last few years, the number of vehicle ECUs getting software updates via over-the-air technology has been steadily increasing, making it difficult for automakers to handle software configurations across their vehicles.
