Aeris Communications: A Future Proven Automotive Platform
Marc Jones, Chairman & CEO
Till a few years ago, automotive technology was largely associated with designing a system with the best suspension or horsepower. Turn the pages to current times and automobiles are prized for their telematics capability, AI interfaces, and the connected car experience. With the focus shifting from what’s under the hood to what’s behind the dashboard, cars are no longer mechanical entities but complex embedded systems that comprise millions of lines of code and multi-core processors. The embedded system market, valued at $154 billion in 2015 is also expected to reach $214 billion by 2020, with the automotive sector contributing largely to this growth.
It’s clear that the future of automobile will be dominated by a combination of computer hardware and software. In such a scenario, auto companies looking for ultimate sophistication when it comes to embedded design can end their search with Aeris Communications. The company offers an end-to-end IoT automotive services platform empowering firms to ramp up their connected car efforts. With close to three decades of market presence, Aeris has a rich legacy and strong expertise to fall back on as well as a global reach that encompasses 190 countries.
Owing to their leading position, there is no contending the viability of the Aeris IoT automotive platform.
Built on a modular, microservices architecture, the Aeris IoT automotive platform features full stack embedded telematics
Built on a modular, microservices architecture, the platform features full stack embedded telematics and is completely customizable in line with the needs of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Microservices also enable the introduction of new services without risking the installed base. As an outcome of over-the-air capabilities, the Aeris platform can easily run the required software and firmware updates in a vehicle remotely.
The company also has a strong security structure in place to combat all possible risks that accompany remote access. In fact, Aeris works with various entities to accelerate automotive security by forging industry-wide collaboration on threat models and adopting best practice methods. Furthermore, using the Aeris AerPort management portal, clients can expect total visibility into every device. The AerPort dashboard allows users to manage, monitor, and troubleshoot devices to gain insights into network operations in near real time.
In an instance, a prominent fleet management services provider that was on the lookout for end-to-end telemetry solutions reached out to Aeris for their top-of-the-line offerings. Powered by the Aeris IoT Service platform, the client can now provide a solution, regardless of location for telematics and fleet management customers that want to lower data costs and improve operational efficiencies with analytics. Additionally, Aeris’ flexible pricing models and minimal upfront commitment meant that the client made a changeover with less financial burden as well as observed increased ROI.
Recently, the company collaborated with Barnacle Parking Enforcement to enhance their web application. Now enforcement officials can track deployed Barnacles, a bright yellow, 16-pound device which sticks to a vehicle’s windshield and immobilizes it. The app running on Aeris IoT connectivity platform allows officers to receive updates, process payments, and run reports on fines collected. The app also includes a worldwide map to track all deployed devices.
In the days to come, the company will globally expand mainly in India backed by eminent telecommunications companies such as BSNL. The plan is to support a wide-range of IoT-focused wireless technologies.
