Distributed Java Architecture for Telematics Services 2000-01-0812
This paper describes a robust, secure Java-based Telematics platform that enables the rapid development and deployment of distributed infotainment and safety service applications. Such a distributed architecture allows the Telematics client in the vehicle to offload data and compute-intensive operations to the server, while executing location-sensitive and vehicle-centric services onboard. Further, by careful segmentation of the client and server modules, multiple tiers of the client product can be designed and rapidly assembled, ranging from inexpensive, thin clients to costlier, self-contained ones. By basing it on Java, we harness and empower a large development community, while reaping all the benefits of Java.
