Reimagining the Connected Car Experience for an Automotive Giant
When one of the world’s largest automobile manufacturers wanted to build a new connected car platform, they chose TechBlocks.
The automaker needed a new platform to connect real-time car data. The client was looking for a partner to build a Connected Services Platform to provide real-time connected data and services to embedded IVI inside vehicles, as well as mobile applications.
Learn How We Delivered Results Beyond the Clients’ Expectations
Events Per Second
Process millions of events per second. Scale to accommodate the growing number of cars on the road every day.
Second or Less Response Time
Highly responsive API platform for connected services.
Built on highly available cloud infrastructure with a geo-redundant platform setup.
Modernize A Complex Legacy Data Ecosystem
The client had a 3-year-old connected services platform that served data and service requests from vehicle AVN and mobile applications. However, there were challenges with their current solution, including:
The system was designed with very basic security measures.
The system was not designed to serve a large number of vehicles concurrently.
The system was not designed to receive vehicle sensor and GPS data.
The system was not designed to scale to a broader set of vehicle models.
An End-To-End Real-Time Data Platform
Based on extensive collaboration and design iteration, we developed an end-to-end Connected Services Platform with new Telematics capability with a design emphasis on scalability, security, and performance that met an extensive list of critical business and safety requirements.
Scalability for Connections
Needed to support 1+ million vehicles connected concurrently.
Scalability to Add New Data Providers
The platform provides POI Search, Place details, traffic, weather, and other value-added services to enhance the driver’s experience.
The response time to APIs is critical to user experience.
Service Up Time/Availability
Needed to provide a minimum uptime of 99.99%.
Security is critical to ensure that the API server is scalable, high-performance, and secure.
The platform must ensure the new connected services platform is backward compatible with currently deployed APIs.
