It is quite common that even interesting conferences or shows have strikingly dumb slogans. If dullness of the motto is a measure for quality, MOST Cooperation’s “MOST Forum”, which will be held on March 23th, 2010 in Frankfurt, you wouldn’t want to miss it. Themed "MOST150 Does It", the demonstrations at the conference and exhibition will visualize the five major fields of in-car use cases.
"MOST150 meets the requirements not only for the traditional areas of entertainment and information, but also for the new domains of mobile connectivity, connected services, and driver assistance," stated Dr. Christian Thiel, MOST Cooperation Administrator. "MOST150 offers the technology and the audio/video capability for next generation automotive infotainment features”, he continues explaining. He is looking ahead to devices such as Head Units, Rear Seat Entertainment, amplifiers, TV-tuners and video displays. In addition, it is ready for new features like Internet access devices, iPods, cameras, video processing units, and many more. “At present, this latest MOST150 Technology is ready for implementation, with various car makers already working on first series projects."
In current and future vehicles, driver assistance functions are starting to complete and extend the feature set of traditional infotainment systems. Along with information features such as navigation systems, traffic information and function warnings, the number of vehicles with driver assistance features like camera systems, distance controls or lane departure warnings will be rapidly increasing. With MOST150, automotive network technology is ready to take this essential step beyond infotainment: Necessary improvements are being investigated, and recent studies prove that MOST is able to support safety-critical applications and may be available as the future network for driver assistance systems. An in-depth insight will be disclosed during the MOST Forum conference presentations
