Viral FOTAViral FOTAViral FOTA
The wireless update of connected vehicles (or "FOTA", for Firmware Over-The-Air) is both the quintessence and Achilles' heel of connected vehicles: the exponential growth of data volumes from 2025 onwards makes these updates is such that the cost of data to update vehicles will surpass the cost of the energy to move said vehicles!
#dot:dot brings an immediate solution to this data scale up problem: #dot equipped vehicles transfer firmware updates directly to their neighbors through the #dot:dot WiFi network and - step by step - perform a complete update of a fleet of vehicles without using the mobile network = without data subscription. The updates spread between vehicles like a virus, hence the name "viral FOTA" given to this service.
