Automatic updating of diverse software products on multiple client computer systems

A system and method update client computers of various end users with software updates for software products installed on the client computers, the software products manufacturered by diverse, unrelated software vendors. The system includes a service provider computer system, a number of client computers and software vendor computer systems communicating on a common network. The service provider computer system stores in an update database information about the software updates of the diverse software vendors, identifying the software products for which software updates are available, their location on the network at the various software vendor computer systems, information for identifying in the client computers the software products stored thereon, and information for determining for such products, which have software updates available. Users of the client computers connect to the service provider computer and obtain a current version of portions of the database. The client computer determines that software products stored thereon, and using this information, determines from the database, which products have updates available, based on product name and release information for the installed products. The user selects updates for installation. The selected updates are downloaded from the software vendor computer systems and installed on the client computer. Payment for the software update and the service is mediated by the service provider computer. Authentication of the user ensures only registered users obtain software updates. Authentication of the software updates ensures that the software updates are virus free and uncorrupted. Changes to the client computer during installation are monitored and archived, allowing the updates to be subsequently removed by the user.

Vehicle software download system and method thereof

The present invention relates to a vehicle software download system and a method thereof, in which electronic control unit (ECU) software is downloaded and a corresponding ECU is updated if the version of ECU software stored in memory is lower than the version of ECU software broadcasted from an external apparatus, thereby promptly updating the ECU software installed in the vehicle.
To this end, there is provided a system for updating software of an ECU installed in a vehicle by communicating with an external apparatus having software of the vehicle stored therein, the system comprising: a receiving unit for receiving ECU software version information broadcasted from the external apparatus; a determination unit for comparing ECU software version information stored in a memory with the ECU software version information received through the receiving unit and determining whether or not an ECU software version stored in the memory is lower than a received software version; a download request unit for requesting download of software of a corresponding version from the external apparatus if the ECU software version stored in the memory is lower than the received software version; and a software providing unit for providing the corresponding ECU with the software downloaded from the external apparatus for software update.
