The Internet Protocol (IP) architecture could not fully satisfy the Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) needed efficiency, due to their dynamic topology and high mobility. This paper presents a technique that updates the software of Electronic Control Units (ECUs) in vehicles using segmented Over The Air (OTA) platform over Information-Centric Network (ICN) architecture. In VANET, the amount of time for active vehicles’ connectivity varies due to the vehicular network’s dynamic topologies. The importance of Flashing Over The Air (FOTA) has been illustrated as well as the impact of applying the ICN architecture on VANETs. Through our experiments, we apply mobility on vehicles and we compare the introduced FOTA over ICN and the newly introduced segmented OTA platform over ICN. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.
