Horseless Carriages of Yesterday, Supercomputers on Wheels of Tomorrow

Real-time in-vehicle Ethernet processing


Modern autonomous cars don’t just ferry people from one place to another. They rely on near real-time, low-latency data processing via in-vehicle Ethernet (10BaseT1S/100BaseT1/1000BaseT1/Multi-Gigabit) to facilitate IoT devices, and infotainment systems features.

Once thought to be a pipe dream, reliable communications and charging systems facilitated by best-in-class wireless charging (Qi), state-of-the-art dashboards, and infotainment technology (HDMI/DP) are quickly becoming must-have features in every commercial vehicle.

New vehicle certification requirements

Before the latest IoT, infotainment, and electronic systems can drive into the autonomous vehicle market, they must first pass vehicle certification requirements that fulfill design, and device compatibility standards for increasingly complex automotive designs.

How commercial vehicle test certifications & solutions are evolving

An interconnected automotive world

While infotainment and automotive systems used to be independent from one another, modern automotive infotainment sync up in-vehicle dash cameras, display panels, and smartphones to provide drivers with navigational assistance while keeping them connected to their phones and entertainment channels. 

Increasingly stringent data standards

External systems like GNSS, 5G, radio / TV broadcasting, and the internet have made it possible to pass traffic data from the surroundings into the car’s navigation system. While this will undoubtedly smoothen the driving experience, it also means that automotive manufacturers now have to meet a wider and more stringent range of communication standards.

Dedicated design solutions for tomorrow

To support engineers in higher level design and manufacturing required for the creation of reliable automotive products, GRL offers dedicated automotive test equipment, production equipment, and software to enable comprehensive testing, validation, and certifications that meet the new communication benchmarks for tomorrow’s autonomous vehicles.

Automotive technology is being adopted at unprecedented rates
