9th September 2010
ES Admin
At the third MOST Forum on April 5, 2011, in Frankfurt (Germany), Daimler AG will provide a summary of more than 10 years' experience in MOST development and give insight into the ongoing MOST150 integration procedure.
MOST150 is based on the well-proven technologies of MOST25. Therefore the vehicle harness, existing mechanisms for the transmission of multimedia data, and established application interfaces can be reused. In addition, MOST150 has the capacity to realize infotainment systems with an up-to-date set of features and a full-fledged multi-seat system. With the new packet channel, which is compatible with Ethernet, MOST150 enables the seamless integration of consumer electronics systems, Internet-based services, and established standards from the IT industry. Following the keynote speech, this one-day industry event on automotive infotainment technology will again present the most innovative research results, technologies, and applications based on MOST.

The Call for Speakers is still open, and anyone interested is invited to submit a proposal for a paper by September 17, 2010. The MOST Forum 2011 will provide an ideal venue to share ideas and experiences, and to discuss the latest news on this de-facto automotive networking standard. The international conference and exhibition will bring together top professionals from the automotive electronics industry and academia to exchange information and results of their recent work on the leading infotainment networking technology. The broad international audience will again include researchers, designers, engineers, system developers, as well as purchasers and journalists, up to managers of the industries involved.

Suggested topics for paper submission include, but are not limited to, the MOST physical layer, MOST networking and system architecture, MOST software and protocols, MOST compliance and quality, MOST applications and series projects experience, MOST and other standards, as well as research and miscellaneous topics such as consumer products in the car. The industry partners SAE International ( and ZVEI (Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association,, as well as the media partners Auto Electronics (, EE Times Europe (, Elektronik automotive (, and ElektronikPraxis ( are contributing their expertise and technological know-how to set up a premier conference program.
