The MOST Cooperation will be presenting a look into the MOST Future at the 14th International VDI Congress Electronic Systems for Vehicles in Baden-Baden (Germany). On October 7-8, 2009, member companies of the organization, through which the leading automotive multimedia network Media Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) is standardized, will show various demonstrations presenting High-Definition video over MOST, Ethernet tunneling over MOST, MOST Consumer Connectivity solutions and MOST compliance solutions.
latest MOST Technology succeeded in providing great speed enhancements and breakthroughs in keeping costs down. The new integrated Intelligent Network Interface Controller (INIC) architecture according to Specification Rev. 3.0 expands the audio/video capability for next generation automotive infotainment devices such as Head Units, Rear Seat Entertainment, Amplifiers, TV-Tuners and Video Displays. First series projects implementing MOST150 Technology have already been started by various car makers.
The next steps in the MOST roadmap comprise the exploitation of several top features: The seamless integration of portable consumer electronic devices will be realized. A further milestone is the support of HD audio and video content such as Blu-ray or HDTV. Upcoming features are camera applications, e.g. for use in driver assistance systems and enhanced diagnostics capabilities. The MOST physical layer, e.g. optimized optical connections, will be further improved and innovations are expected soon.
