MOST Based Solutions for Implementing Digital Video in Vehicle Multimedia Applications 2002-01-0268
Recent trends in automotive electronics point towards a growing demand for sophisticated audio and video systems in new vehicles. These systems are being driven by several factors including a migration of consumer electronic devices to vehicles and a need to control these devices in the vehicle's driver and passenger environment. The incorporation of digital network buses, such as MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport), build the digital data infrastructure in the vehicle for these advanced audio/video systems. However, additional considerations must be given to the constraints around the deployment of the audio and video devices into the vehicle and adapting them to the vehicle's digital infrastructure bus. This paper will explore these constraints and discuss some of the approaches that are being taken to deploy digital video systems on the MOST optical network bus in emerging vehicle multimedia applications.
