Driving with CETRAC
Autonomous driving will see the accident responsibility shifting from 100% car drivers to 100% car manufacturers from level 4 autonomy in the early 2020ies.
The consequence is that car manufacturers will look with permanent integral safety at each level of the architecture, including networking. With the progress of automated or autonomous systems using high resolution sensors, there is also a growing demand for high data rate and low latency embedded secure networks in several market verticals, in particular new generation aircraft and autonomous vehicles.
Ethernet and its derivatives (AFDX, automotive Ethernet) are natural candidate technologies market players are looking for, working hard to bridge the gap for determinism, safety and security. CETRAC is the enabler to build a secure embedded networked architecture, based on automotive Ethernet, CAN networks. Other protocols can be added on demand.
