Mullen Inks Strategic Partnership with DSA Systems for OTA Technology and Vehicle System Diagnostics

Reading time ( words)

Mullen Automotive, Inc, an emerging electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, announces today a strategic partnership with DSA Systems (DSA), a leading international provider of vehicle system diagnostics and remote OTA technology.  Mullen and DSA will be collaborating on the upcoming Mullen FIVE EV Crossover Program.

DSA has been a global leader for more than 40 years in equipping automotive OEMs with vehicle diagnostics and connectivity, providing monitoring and supporting technologies throughout the entire life cycle of vehicles. Mullen and DSA will work together on developing proprietary vehicle diagnostics and remote OTA capabilities for the Mullen FIVE EV Crossover.  It is envisioned that all of Mullen's future vehicle programs will also utilize DSA’s underpinning diagnostic technology. 

“We intend for the Mullen FIVE to have the best 5G OTA technology from DSA, allowing us to remotely diagnose and proactively fix potential vehicle issues,” said David Michery, CEO and chairman of Mullen Automotive.  “OTA updates and fixes promote a greater service experience for customers. Ideally, we will be able to proactively identify a potential vehicle issue, remotely update and fix the issue, all while the vehicle is parked at the customer’s home and not a dealership waiting for service.”

“DSA is very excited to collaborate with Mullen on advanced diagnostics and connectivity technology,” said Mike Wells, president and CEO of DSA Systems. “DSA has been building an expansive portfolio of products and solutions in the area of vehicle life cycle management for many years. Vehicles are increasingly built as software-defined products with many advanced features. As a result, OEMs can continually develop their products and release new features over time, much like a smartphone. Whilst this is undoubtedly a huge benefit to the vehicle owner, it creates huge challenges for the vehicle manufacturer to manage and maintain all this software across multiple platforms, model years and ECUs. With DSA’s suite of tools, Mullen will be able to manage, monitor, diagnose and update their fleet of vehicles with confidence and ease for years to come.”

The Mullen FIVE is built on an EV crossover skateboard platform that offers multiple powertrain configurations and trim levels in a svelte design that is “Strikingly DifferentTM” and exciting to experience in person.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.
