Report Summary:

The second annual Automotive Software Survey, conducted by Strategy Analytics and Aurora Labs, reveals an industry that is starting to get to grips with the OTA challenge, but which still faces significant obstacles as it moves towards becoming more software-centric. The key findings of the 2021 Automotive Software Survey fall into three main categories: OEM Software Ownership; Software Quality Management and The Maturity of Over-the-Air Updates.
