Automotive Ethernet Congress 2018
A successful story goes on. This year more than 800 specialists, speakers and exhibitors saw, heard and showed automotive Ethernet advances. Next time round, on January 30-31 in 2018, the Automotive Ethernet Congress of Elektronik automotive is set to take place for the fourth time in succession.
In the meantime we're not just asking whether Ethernet should play a role in the automobile, but instead what kind of a role. Because to implement self-driving vehicles and widespread vehicle networking, the automotive bus systems working to date can no longer tackle the need. Ethernet with its service-based architecture is the best way to come to grips with the growing complexity of modern automotive networks. The longterm objective and challenge at the same time is 10-Gbit/s Ethernet.
In 18 papers – from the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, Audi, BMW, Daimler, Renault, General Motors, Continental and Infineon – the Automotive Ethernet Congress spans the entire range of topics in and around the entry of Ethernet into the automobile. With a special focus on the physical layer, network architecture, AVB/TSN, plus safety and security.
In 6 parallel workshops attendees will delve deeply into problems like validation of AVB/TSN termination and switch implementations, or how automobile producers and tier #1 suppliers can ensure simple inhouse validation (OPEN TC8 v2). At the same time aiming to produce the appropriate solutions.
The Automotive Ethernet Congress 2018 will be broadened by a table top exhibition with new products and systems, plus interesting demonstrations.
