Altran, global leader in Engineering and R&D services (ER&D), and Nokia are developing a joint solution which will help car manufacturers, railways operators, utilities and smart cities to digitalize their operations. As the development of connected and autonomous vehicles is significantly accelerating, this solution will enable connectivity and the delivery value-added services for users.
Altran and Nokia will build a solution to enable new uses, future evolutions and openness to other systems during their lifetime, giving original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) control of their content management strategy. For example, this platform enables over the air, secure and safe software updates for vehicles, without the need for costly recalls or updates at the dealership.
The collaboration will leverage Altran’s IoT offering, VueForge®, which supports enterprises in transforming their business and organizations, by connecting machines, objects, people and environments: VueForge® brings together a complete set of services and assets throughout the IoT technology chain:
The collaboration will also leverage CoherenSE®, the open software platform for intelligent vehicles developed by Altran in partnership with Jaguar Land Rover (based on Service-Oriented Architecture principles). The platform simplifies and rationalizes the car’s software equipment, allowing updates over the air and centralized management.
Nokia brings strong expertise in connectivity and IoT platforms, especially in three areas:
