Strengthened automotive cybersecurity laws have convinced automakers to go all in with software updatable vehicles. How long before a used car is too old for an update?
What’s at stake:
Carmakers see a big opportunity for software-defined vehicles and subscription-based services that “update” and “upgrade” vehicles after purchase. Can OEMs justify lifetime software support for their vehicles’ safety and security, or will third-party repair services pop up to magically fix complex machine-learning based software problems? Or will carmakers simply limit production and shorten a model’s lifespan, leaving many perfectly operative used cars – lacking safety software updates – in the junkyard?
This is great stuff. Let’s get started.
