AERIS IoT AUTOMOTIVE SERVICES:
EXTENDING THE OWNERSHIP EXPERIENCE
The Aeris IoT Automotive Services delivery platform enables automakers to customize connected vehicle solutions in order to create a better driving and ownership experience.
As a trusted and proven partner with more than a decade in the IoT sector, Aeris is the only supplier offering the complete technology stack for global services that can be completely tailored for specific needs. In fact, the Aeris platform consists of various technology layers that are modular so you can select only what you need and even incorporate your own connectivity technology or carrier / operator of your choice. Services include wireless connectivity; carrier management; call center enablement; a device management platform; business intelligence/data analytics and monetization processes; global reach; program delivery; hosting; security; and customer management.
Safety and Security
The primary goal for any automotive service is to ensure the safety and security of the driver and passengers. To that end, the Aeris offering includes connected car systems monitoring, automated emergency management, and predictive maintenance.
With the ubiquitousness of smart phones, many connected car-related functions can be activated remotely. These include vehicle health reports, such as engine performance metrics, maintenance notifications, as well as proactive diagnosis and predictive maintenance. Dig a bit deeper and services also can include reports on functionality, such as lock / unlock; remote engine start; do-not-enter / do not leave zones (geo-fencing); as well as multiple types of alerts (theft, speeding, hard braking, hard turns, engine issues, tire or fuel requirements, and more.)
For automakers, Aeris offers complete end-to-end solutions, including wireless connectivity, carrier and customer management, call center, device management, analytics, and security. Oversight monitoring with in-depth analytics, software patches, and new services deployments can be accessed easily, with over the air updates conducted to save time and costs.
Innovation that Works
Aeris IoT Automotive Services, with its cloud-based architecture, provides industry leading performance, scalability, and reliability, thereby delivering innovative solutions that lower the overall costs of the connected vehicle.
Furthermore, Aeris enables enhanced service provider selection so as to dynamically pick the strongest network available; has the ability to ingest terabytes of data and analyze in real-time and then provide over the air updates; has industry leading edge processing performance; and deploys containers to allow for extreme customization and faster time to markets.
In-Vehicle Software for Service Delivery
Aeris IoT Automotive Platform: How it Works
Providing complete automotive services—as well as a delivery platform—enable secure, embedded telematics to easily integrate and connect with the vehicle, allowing for full account creation and management services. To further ease the process, notifications and updates can be delivered remotely via a Smartphone. The Aeris platform also includes:
- A control client in the vehicle that obtains location, manages communications, and handles services delivery
- Mobile apps that share information with riders and passengers, allowing people to summon a ride
- A services catalog, with an extensive set of micro-services
- OTA manager that updates software in the vehicle remotely, adding new services, patching security bugs, and more
- A core back end that effectively manages services delivery, including event and notification managers, command and control components, as well as the code to handle authentications and authorizations
- An API gateways that easily connects to OEM systems or municipal systems
- Easy integration with third-party systems, such as entertainment services
The Aeris IoT Automotive solution is built on modular, micro-services architecture, which are customizable for OEM deployments. The benefits reflect the ability to create new services in a rapid manner, adapting to changing market conditions on the fly. These services can be optimized for specific regions, especially when diverse locations have different service needs. Additionally, micro-services allow for the introduction of new services without risking the installed base. What does this all mean? Ideally positioned for services with low fault tolerances, micro-services can result in lower costs, less risk, and faster time to market.
The Aeris platform enables rapid and effective scaling. This is accomplished by way of capsule farms, which allow for extreme customization and a much faster time to market.
Capsule farms essentially are containers clustered around a specific logic, containers that are ideal for TaaS (Telematics as a Service). Spin up multiple instances of infrastructure almost instantly for performance protection and rapid development in either a public or private cloud. In an automotive solution, capsule farms can help with scalability while improving responsiveness, making services delivery ultra-fast.
A Global Solution
With more than 10 million devices on the network, and a global reach that encompasses 190 countries and more than 550 carriers worldwide, Aeris IoT Automotive Services provides unparalleled, end-to-end solutions — from connectivity to telematics applications to evolving transportation-as-a-service features.
The Aeris IoT Automotive Services platform enables granular data acquisition for automotive telematics, as well as speed to market for new features and functionality, thereby driving value to customers, strengthening brand value and loyalty.
Aeris’ modular and flexible solutions can be customized to fit any deployment, regardless of size, maturity levels, or location. We deliver robust new services, improve existing services, or change business models over time.
The simplicity of the solution equates to the faster creation of services to meet shifting automotive market needs, including flexible pricing models, lower operational expenditures, an easier expansion pathway, and, ultimately, safer and more secure vehicles.
