Ethernet is coming to cars

Lucas Mearian | Oct. 23, 2014
Ethernet will internally connect electronics in the vehicle and externally, the car to the Internet of Things.

For example, Paris-based Parrot, which supplies mobile accessories to automakers BMW, Hyundai and others, has developed in-car Ethernet. Its first Ethernet-connected systems could arrive as soon as 2015, says Eric Riyahi, executive vice president of global operations.

The BMW X5, released last year, used single-pair twisted wire, 100Mbps Ethernet to connect its driver-assistance cameras.

Parrot's new Ethernet-based Audio Video Bridging (AVB) technology uses Broadcom's BroadR-Reach automotive Ethernet controller chips.
