The Use of Power Line Carrier (PLC) Communication System for Video and Data Distribution on Trucks, Trailers and Buses 973174

An innovative Power Line Carrier (PLC) Communication system for video and digitally signal processed data distribution using the existing DC copper wire is presented. The major contribution consists of a new signal coupler that achieves a stable transmission bandwidth on the DC electrical lines. Several weeks of continuous beta tests achieved video transmission on the trucks +12V wiring (from the back of the truck to the driver's cabinet) and product manufacturing and delivery has started. Benefits include: simplicity of application; ease of implementation; effectiveness with video and data; applicability to all application types; elimination of coax and twisted pair wiring and its maintenance.
