Remote software updates protect against counterfeit money

G+D Currency Technology has assigned RTSoft to code the agent for automated remote software updates and data exchange for BPS C2 banknote processing systems with central dashboards.


Key facts
  • Develop a cross-platform data exchange and software update agent
  • Programmed in C
  • Utilizing a cross-platfrom framework
  • Option to port device logic to different OS
  • Slim data exchange between target application and communication agent
  • Secure M2M application layer implementation for data exchange with clouds and servers
  • Rule engine for dashboard feeds via that channel
  • Local software update agent logic
  • Future option to port transport layer to TCP/TLS
Solution

The data exchange now relies on secure M2M communication with private and public clouds as well as on-premise servers. The agent was designed on the basis of a cross-platform framework. Future updates to different operating systems are seamlessly possible. Today, G+D Currency Technology can update several hundred banknote processing systems extremely fast with only a few clicks at any available bandwidth. Another important aspect for G+D was the plug & play functionality of the RTSoft solution, which does not require any on-site configuration during commissioning for activating the 24/7 monitoring system and update channel. For local maintenance services, the agent also offers a side channels for updates via USB

OTA update for PoS Terminals
RTSoft has been tasked by major IT provider of automation systems for Retail industry to develop a solution for remote update of software (operating system and/or application) for a family of devices PoS terminals.

The solution should allow an automatic rollback in case of update failures such as connectivity problem or unexpected power loss, implement versioning and secure delivery mechanisms, and be customizable for future integrations.

Additionally, the solution should include a cloud back-end service for device and software repository, content delivery and rollout management.

The target devices’s characteristics are:

  • SoC: Mediatek MT7688
  • Flash memory: 64MB
  • Operating system: Linux (OpenWRT)

Digital cockpit
RTSoft has been chosen by Motherson Innovation GmbH, an innovative automotive company, for prototyping “The Empathic Cockpit” – a digital cockpit of the  future, harmoniously absorbing the newest available technologies for reaching a unique level of comfort and real-time functionality.
The solution was presented at the CES 2018 Show in Las Vegas.
