Driving By Ethernet

The race to add more sophisticated and safety-critical electronics into cars is forcing carmakers to revisit the communications systems within increasingly electrified and connected vehicles. Until very recently, communication between components within a vehicle was simplistic, and communication between vehicles was non-existent. All of that is changing quickly. Rapid and secure communicatio... » read more

Securing Automotive Over-The-Air (SOTA) Updates

Modern vehicles are essentially a network of networks – equipped with a range of embedded communication methods and capabilities. Consequently, there is broad industry consensus that vehicle cyber security should rank as a top priority for the automotive sector. In this context, automotive OEMs have begun to provide secure over-the-air (SOTA) updates for various systems. Recently, the non-... » read more

Will 5G Enable Connected Cars?

As the telecom, automotive and semiconductor ecosystems rally to develop solutions for next-generation mobile networks for the connected car, 5G technology has emerged as a strong contender. Fifth-generation mobile networks will enable data transmission rates of more than 10Gps, connecting machines to machines, as well as everything else, including smartphones, IoT devices that require a... » read more

The Challenge Of Updating Cars

News stories about automotive hacking are becoming more common, and so is the concern about how to curb this problem. Security has become a new layer of system design complexity, and it's being taken increasingly seriously in a market that until very recently largely ignored it. That attitude is changing rapidly though, particularly with the advent of autonomous and connected vehicles. Secu... » read more
