Sonatus Awarded Automotive News’ PACEpilot Innovation to Watch

Sonatus’ Dynamic Data Management Earns Judges’ Nods for Unlocking the Potential of Data-driven Innovation for Automakers 

Sunnyvale, Calif. – October 5, 2021 Sonatus, a leading automotive software company that is unlocking the full potential of the software-defined vehicle, today announced that it has been named a “2021 PACEpilot Innovation to Watch” by automotive publication Automotive News. The company was recognized for its innovative Dynamic Data Management solution, which unlocks data-driven innovation for automakers by enabling simplified, cloud-based configuration, collection and access to virtually any vehicle data—in real time.

The PACEpilot program, part of Automotive News’ prestigious annual PACE awards, recognizes pre-commercialized innovations from automotive suppliers that are projected to positively impact the market.

“We are honored to receive this year’s PACEpilot award for our first-of-its-kind Dynamic Data Management solution — which recently entered production with a top-tier OEM,” said Jeffrey Chou, CEO of Sonatus. “Harnessing data is foundational to unlocking fast and continuous innovation with vehicles. Our Dynamic Data Management goes well beyond current industry best practices to empower automakers to achieve this by enabling them to intelligently and securely collect, transmit, process, store, and access vehicle data.”

Although software-defined vehicles are still in the early stages of development, the rapidly escalating digital demands of mobility will require vehicles to become “data centers on wheels.” As part of this evolution, automakers will need to improve their limited and inflexible data collection and data pipelines to get the right vehicle data at the right time—and at the right cost.
