Excelfore announced that its eSync data pipeline will be available through Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform for Over-the-Air updates, diagnostics and telematics. eSync will be showcased as a solution accelerator for Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform.

The Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform combines cloud and edge services built on Microsoft Azure with a strong partner network to empower automotive companies to build connected driving experiences. 

More information about Microsoft's Connected Vehicle Platform partners, and MCVP at IAA, the Frankfurt Auto Show, are available on the Microsoft blog.

Scalable and secure data pipeline

The eSync platform employs a server-client-agent architecture to build a scalable and secure bi-directional data pipeline between the cloud and the various electronic end devices in a vehicle. It can update software and firmware over-the-air (OTA), and can collect real-time operating data from any of the end devices in the vehicle. The bi-directional capability of the eSync data pipeline provides the basis for aggregating “big data” and building interactive learning loops between the cloud and the many controllers and sensors in the vehicle.  The scalability of the eSync platform has helped OEM’s  achieve full-vehicle OTA to dozens of in-vehicle electronic devices in 2019 production vehicles.

“We envision this collaboration as combining Excelfore’s extensive experience in reaching all of the electronic devices in a car, with the global cloud expertise of Microsoft,” said Shrinath Acharya, CEO of Excelfore. He continued, adding, “The world’s leading companies run on Azure, and we are enthusiastic to offer Excelfore eSync as a Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform accelerator.”

Reaching any end devices

Tara Prakriya, GM Azure IoT Mobility, Maps and Connected Vehicle at Microsoft said, "Excelfore has integrated their proven data pipeline with Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform’s in vehicle and cloud architecture to reach any number of end devices in the connected car. OTA updates and data gathering are increasingly important technologies for the digital transformation of the automotive market.

Excelfore provides a full implementation of the eSync pipeline, including the server in Microsoft Azure, the client in the vehicle, and agents for the end devices.  The specifications for the eSync data pipeline and eSync compliant components can be accessed through the eSync Alliance, an open multi-company trade association.
