This paper introduces a novel method for diagnosing embedded systems and updating embedded software installed on the electronics control units of vehicles through the Internet using client and server units. It also presents the communication protocols between the vehicle and the manufacturer for instant fault diagnosis and software update while ensuring security for both parties. AiroDiag ensures maximum vehicle efficiency for the driver and provides the manufacturer with up-to-date vehicle performance data, allowing enhanced future software deployment and minimum loss in case of vehicle recalls. © 2012 IEEE.
