If the smart vehicle is found to be in a safe area, the system initiates the upgrade process. On the other hand, if the vehicle is in any dangerous location, the upgrade sustains for the time being, until the vehicle reaches a safe area.

That’s how the method determines whether to install the update or not. Because there is a possibility that the vehicle might show some glitch or inappropriate function during the OTA update.
