USA: AVnu Alliance and Japan Automotive Software Platform and Architecture (JASPAR) have entered into a liaison agreement to collaborate on automotive Ethernet standards for in-vehicle networking.
With this collaboration, the AVnu Alliance’s “Technical Workgroup,” which is developing the alliance’s automotive certification program, now teams up with JASPAR’s “Next Generation High-Speed In-Vehicle Network Working Group,” which defines the requirements for a high-speed Ethernet-based network for infotainment systems and automotive control systems.
By working together to advance AVB protocols such as Stream Reservation Protocol (SRP), traffic shaping, and Precision Time Protocol (PTP), the two alliances aim to minimize integration challenges and development costs for automotive makers, and give them confidence that all parts of the complex automotive network will communicate seamlessly with each other through AVnu Alliance certification.
Hideki Goto, Chair of Next-generation High-speed In-Vehicle Network work group, JASPAR, said: “JASPAR supports the direction AVnu Alliance has taken to standardize and certify AVB-based automotive systems. As the collective voice of the Japanese automotive industry, our members will be able to contribute to this process for the benefit of manufacturers and developers of all in-vehicle systems.”
Rick Kreifeldt, AVnu Alliance President, said: Alignment with the Japanese automotive ecosystem is a significant development for AVnu Alliance. The combined membership of JASPAR and AVnu Alliance includes key players in the automotive industry, and together we can continue our progress toward a fully-networked automotive infrastructure.”
