The first installment in this two-part series discusses solutions that enable wireless interface between mobile devices and vehicle subsystems.
Communication is one of the key drivers of automotive electronics. Standards are emerging for in-vehicle networking not only to interconnect infotainment components but also to reduce wiring harness requirements among different car subsystems. Two-wire automotive Ethernet and PLC are examples of technologies that are impacting the way car electronics are evolving. New standards and applications for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside communication are also resulting in new products. All these developments are leading to a broader industry commitment to create advanced networks for traffic monitoring and control.
