Spirent Communications, the automotive connectivity & autonomy test solutions provider, has announced that the company has been selected by Jaguar Land Rover to verify next-generation automotive Ethernet in-vehicle networking.
Modern vehicles have up to 100 engine control units (ECUs), and as more vehicles support advanced features such as multiple cameras and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), automotive designers must adopt higher bandwidth in-vehicle networks. Automotive Ethernet is derived from the same robust Ethernet technology used in communication networks today, adding automotive-specific protocols and new physical layer connectivity designed for the automotive environment.
To help develop and verify its automotive Ethernet systems and determine the best Ethernet designs for its vehicles, Jaguar Land Rover has selected the Spirent C50 and Spirent TTworkbench solutions to test the performance of their Ethernet networks, as well as to verify ECUs’ conformance to Open Alliance’s TC8 and AVNU’s AVB test standard.
“Spirent’s C50 and TestCenter software will help Jaguar Land Rover to verify the robustness of their in-vehicle Ethernet networks,” said Thomas Schulze, Director of Business Development for Spirent’s automotive business. “As vehicles become more connected and autonomous, Spirent is helping more and more organizations to assure these new features deliver the experiences and safety expected by end users.”
