Smart Delta technology is used to compare two versions of software, a source version and a target version, mostly in the form of binary executable image files. Identifying only the essential changes, the delta, between the source and target versions, guarantees the smallest and most efficient update file. Smart Delta performs an advanced comparison between any two images identifying changes between content and code location. The technology recognizes the difference between new content and generated content such as changes to reference pointers in the code. It then creates the instruction set defining how to open up and install the delta on the target device to construct a bit-for-bit identical target version by combining the installed source image and the delta. A by-product of this technology is a full analysis of the changes between the source and the target images.
HARMAN’s advanced virtualization technology is based on Type-1 Virtualization (bare-metal virtualization). The technology includes a hypervisor that virtualizes access to the CPU and memory and backend/front-end drivers that virtualize access to the peripheral hardware devices. The hypervisor serves as the scheduler to run multiple operating systems simultaneously and allocate hardware resources according to the needs of the OS and predefined priorities. It saves Integration time reuses development by virtualizing the processing unit and memory as well as virtualizing dedicated peripheral hardware used for networking, I/O and multimedia.
On June 1, the U.S. Congress enacted the Raechel and Jacqueline Houck Safe Rental Car Act of 2015. While this piece of legislation will ground rental cars for 24 hours after written recall notices are received, there’s still an issue that affects consumer safety: These notices may not arrive or be opened by rental agencies until well after the public has been made aware of the issue. Meanwhile, recalled rental cars are still on the road.READ THE BLOG
Much has been written about over-the-air (OTA) updates reducing the need for recalls of essential automotive software, but there are many other use cases for OTA updates. There are two aspects of OTA updates that need expounding: What is being updated and where it is being updated.READ MORE
