NAV Alliance sponsors automotive ethernet congress in Munich

NAV Alliance—a group of vehicle manufacturers, technology suppliers, and networking players founded to develop the next generation of in-vehicle network infrastructure—will sponsor a congress February 13 and 14, 2019 in Munich. The aims of the meeting are to discuss the alliance mission across its technical working groups.

During the congress NAV Alliance representatives from member companies will be available to discuss the alliance mission and its technical working groups:

  • Protocol Encapsulation for Ethernet
  • System Controls and Management
  • 25G and 50G Automotive Ethernet PHY Specifications
  • Physical Layer System & Component Integration
  • EMC Requirements and Limits

According to NAV Alliance, autonomous driving is creating a need for powerful in-vehicle networking solutions that can transmit data between the increasing number of high-resolution sensors, cameras, and processing engines at blazing-fast speeds. Multi-gigabit ethernet provides the necessary levels of safety and reliability.
