Faurecia joins eSync Alliance


Faurecia joins eSync Alliance

The eSync Alliance announces that Faurecia, one of the world’s leading automotive technology companies, has become its latest member.

The eSync Alliance is a multi-company initiative for end-to-end over-the-air (OTA) updating and data services for the connected car. The Alliance is based around eSync, a multi-vendor OTA platform of server and embedded software, which provides a secure bi-directional data pipeline between the cloud and electronic end devices in vehicles.

eSync can deliver and update software and firmware over-the-air, while collecting real-time operational data from in-car devices. Leveraging a global network of co-operating suppliers, the eSync system can help prevent increasingly costly and inconvenient vehicle recalls, as well as creating new opportunities for carmakers to enhance vehicle software and features on vehicles in the field.

Rick Kreifeldt, Executive Director at the eSync Alliance, said, "Faurecia is at the center of the technology revolution in today’s automotive sector, addressing four megatrends which are accelerating change: connectivity, autonomous driving, ride-sharing and electrification. Adding Faurecia to the membership of our open alliance brings an important voice to the collaboration on the eSync specifications, and helps drive the key benefits of standardizing the data pipeline from the cloud to the many diverse edge devices in the connected car.

Faurecia’s vision for the Cockpit of the Future is to provide a more versatile, predictive and connected environment to enable occupants to make the most of their time on board. Connectivity will allow continuous monitoring and upgrading of the vehicle and will provide access to a wide range of services for car occupants, including safety and on-board user experiences for comfort, well-being, productivity and entertainment.
