GM Vehicles to Get Over-the-Air Upgrade
May 21, 2019—General Motors is rolling out electrical systems designed to securely handle heavy data traffic and software downloads, reported Reuters.
The company said most of its global models will be capable of over-the-air software upgrades by 2023. The new GM electronic systems will be capable of handling up to 4.5 terabytes of data processing power per hour, five times the capability of current GM vehicles
GM executives have said in the past that matching Tesla’s use of over-the-air updates would require new vehicle electrical systems, and robust cybersecurity to assure that vehicles could not be tampered with by hackers.
