Changes in networking are likely to occur as safety systems are linked together to further reduce accidents and pave the way for autonomous driving. Read more from Automotive Engineering on the topic at http://articles.sae.org/12862/.

IEEE has announced formation of the IEEE 802.3 Single Twisted Pair 100 Mb/s Ethernet Study Group to explore the market opportunities and needs for a 100 Mb/s speed for Ethernet in automotive networking. Many vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers desire IEEE 802.3 standards-based interoperable solutions to enable and extend a multi-vendor eco-system for the automotive industry. While an increasing number of automotive subsystems will require a 1-Gb/s Ethernet connection, the stringent economic constraints of the volume vehicle environment allow only a 100-Mb/s Ethernet connection in many applications. A reduced data rate will allow for lower-cost electronic control units and more economical twisted pair wiring. As a result, automotive vendors are looking for an IEEE standardized, interoperable solution at 100 Mb/s.
