Exploring the future of vehicle network architectures: highlights from the Automotive Ethernet Congress

AutotechInsight Analysis Monthly

Today, most vehicles — including many premium German vehicles — are still designed with in-vehicle networks using CAN and LIN buses, in addition to proprietary links for special connections between cameras or flat-panel displays and ECUs. It is clear from this meeting that much of the industry has begun its long road toward a single bus type, based on Ethernet, that simplifies connectivity between regions of different data speeds, eliminating electronics complexity such as dedicated gateways in favor of switches, as a result. The extent of this transition will surely be charted in future Ethernet Congress meetings.

The Automotive Ethernet Congress is a high-profile event that brings together leading technology experts to discuss the future direction of new vehicle network architectures and all-automotive Ethernet network communication. This congress, typically held annually, focuses on current and future technology and product developments in the automotive Ethernet industry. The event provides a platform for professionals to share knowledge and insights on advanced features of automotive Ethernet technology. It serves as a significant milestone in the journey toward high-speed networking and central computing in the automotive industry. Representing S&P Global Mobility, Richard Dixon, Associate Director — E/E and Semiconductor domain, participated in the event. What follows are some of the insights and highlights gathered from the occasion.
