Better Vehicles Faster. The Future of Vehicle Knowledge Management

Movimento - future of vehicle knowledge

The transportation industry has come a long way over the past century. The transition from horse and buggy to 1,000+ horsepower engines and electric hybrid vehicles happened relatively quickly in the larger scheme of human civilization. Of course, with that kind of explosive technological advancement, some growing pains were inevitable.

Today’s vehicles are smarter than ever. The average commercial production vehicle rolling off the line has more intelligence under the hood than the so-called supercomputers that took up several rooms just a few short decades ago. Unfortunately, in many respects, manufacturing models are only now just beginning to catch up with those advances.

More intelligent machines require more intelligent means of production, tracking and updating. From engineering to engine line issue resolution and every step in between, today’s high-tech vehicles require a higher level of maintenance and production management capabilities.

Movimento - Gartner Conference 2013 - internet of things (cropped)

Vehicle knowledge management (Premio) is the science that drives everything they do at Movimento. In order to provide their customers with the most advanced automotive diagnostics products, vehicle tracking, software reflashing services and fleet management solutions possible, Movimento is always developing new ideas and innovations.

For example, Movimento’s research and development team is currently fine-tuning the technology that will soon allow every vehicle to go online anywhere in the world and download the latest software updates to its operating system. As cloud-based network technologies continue to advance and wireless bandwidths increase worldwide, the Company looks forward to making the Venturo™ link solution commercially available. Given the increasingly pressing industry need for automotive software updating, the potential for this cloud-based automotive software updating and diagnostics technology is market-changing.

The company was founded in 2003 and is headquartered in Plymouth, Michigan, with additional offices in Gothenburg, Sweden and Hinckley, England.

Movimento Product & Services Offerings

Movimento - current market

The automobile market is driving forward at breakneck pace. As technological advancements change their capabilities and open more doors, it has become more critical than ever to keep vehicles (and vehicle software) up to date. Consumers are clamoring for more advanced features, better technology and more customizable software in their vehicles. From navigation systems to autonomous parking, cars seem to be built with more software than hardware!

Automobile software is always changing. Whether these changes result from consumer shifts, manufacturer recalls or automotive warranties, the result is the same: Automotive OEMs and the rest of the supply chain need reliable reflash technology to keep vehicles updated effectively.

Why Now?
Car manufacturers have had a turbulent few years: In 2012, General Motors issued 17 recalls involving 1.5 million vehicles; in 2013, 23 recalls were issued for 800,000 cars; and already in 2014, more than 29 mandatory recalls affected almost 13 million units worldwide.

At this point, voluntary and mandatory automobile recalls seem almost commonplace. But to automobile owners, dealerships and rental agencies, these recalls are devastating. Consumers are understandably wary, and if you don’t offer proof that your inventory is safe and up to date with new vehicle software, they’ll find someone who does.

For dealerships, recalls affect current inventory and future deliveries, which create serious problems for pending sales. Recalls also add a new burden: following up with past customers to make sure they’re aware of potential hazards.

PUMA 3: Vehicle Reflashing Revolutionized

Movimento - PUMA

In order to meet the automotive software updating needs of OEMs and component manufacturers worldwide, Movimento has developed the industry’s most technologically advanced vehicle reflashing and diagnostic device.

The PUMA 3 from Movimento represents a revolution in handheld vehicle reflash technology. Whether it’s utilized in R&D or workshop environments, this versatile and powerful handheld design provides an innovative level of user ease for stand-alone vehicle diagnostics and automotive software updating applications.

Altero: Expert Vehicle Reflash Solutions

Movimento - Altero

Whether the need is a one-time ECU reflash emergency or require ongoing vehicle reflashing services to keep the production line moving smoothly, Movimento’s Altero method for vehicle reflashing meets all OEM automotive software updating and vehicle diagnostics needs.

What’s more, with Movimento as a partner, through its proactive Altero preparedness program, Movimento takes the time to learn individual customer’s unique requirements, preloading its line of advanced handheld vehicle reflash devices to meet the OEM customer’s exact specifications. The result is even faster response times to help automotive manufacturers keep production on schedule.

Premio: Vehicle Hardware and Software Integration

Movimento’s Premio solution is a comprehensive and integrated approach to managing the hardware and software status of major vehicle systems.

The Movimento Premio service package includes:

Movimento - Premio

  • Managed update of in-vehicle systems by a dedicated team of Movimento resources
  • Updates to include hardware (new physical modules / displays) and software (firmware, calibrations)
  • Movimento team proactively engages with the applicable vehicle owners to schedule updates
  • Management of system knowledge data in Nuvolo by VIN or other unique vehicle ID:
    • VIN-specific data preparation of automotive software and calibration for accuracy and efficiency
    • Complete traceability of all data written to and read from the system modules

    • Historical record of changes and updates
  • Secure, managed user rights:

    Maritime Broadband Inc. (“MBI”) provides the only widely affordable, global, “always on” solution for unlimited Internet at sea. The company, founded at the end of 2008 and based in Long Island City, NY, has developed a proprietary antenna which uses the reliable C-band frequencies but is smaller, and therefore less expensive to produce and operate, than previously available systems. This offers major benefits to commercial shipping fleets including greater crew satisfaction (leading to lower turnover) and potential improvements in ship management (route optimization, operating efficiency, etc.).

    MBI has been focused on R&D but is now rapidly transitioning to an operating company which can reliably deliver against worldwide market demand.

To successfully navigate this transition, MBI is seeking a dynamic and accomplished senior executive who is inspired by the challenge of building an operating team, and establishing high-quality production processes and a global sales, supply, and service network, to help conquer the last Internet frontier – the world’s oceans.

    Position Overview

    This individual will be counted on to drive the business forward; to create the organization, systems, procedures, and infrastructure required for MBI to scale successfully; and to “own” the Company’s financial performance, closely tracking the relevant metrics and holding people accountable for results. He/she will:

    • Report to the CEO and work closely with board and the rest of the management team
    • Assume P&L responsibility; manage with strong awareness of the Company’s financial situation and bottom line.
    • Play a senior leadership role in strategic and day-to-day matters
    • Directly oversee R&D, production, operations, and finance
    • Support the CEO in high-level sales and marketing activities
    • Develop and implement the internal structures and processes needed to support rapid growth
    • Attract, manage, motivate, and retain an outstanding team
    • Foster a culture characterized by both collegiality and accountability
    • Represent the company as needed with external constituencies, including customers, partners, investors, and advisors.
