—Ethernet-based in-car communication is currently a hot topic in the automotive industry. Soon Ethernet will start to oust MOST bus in its domain of info-and entertainment applications. However, the full benefit of a technologically integrated in-car network will only become rewarding with the deployment of an Ethernet-based backbone that integrates all(More)
In current vehicles, a large number of control units are connected by several automotive specific communication buses, facilitating innovative distributed applications. At the same time, computers and entertainment devices use IP and commodity communications technology like Ethernet to connect to the Internet, allowing for innovative solutions and(More)
Switched Ethernet is widely used for all kinds of applications. However, for demanding multimedia streaming applications in a fully-loaded network, legacy Ethernet is not the best choice due to its limited Quality-of-Service (QoS) support. The new specification of the IEEE 802.1 Audio/Video Bridging (AVB) standard, an extension to legacy Ethernet, provides(More)
This paper presents the concept and preliminary performance evaluation of a stochastic network discovery approach named opportunistic scanning. Therein, a station only pauses its communication for an extremely short time interval to scan for other technologies / systems. The selected scanning duration is short enough not to be noticeable by higher layer(More)

Current in-car communication networks are based on automotive specific technologies like CAN, FlexRay and MOST and use proprietary communication protocols. While CAN and FlexRay come with a signal-based communication paradigm, MOST provides a more sophisticated interface based on "function blocks" to the application programmer. In the next years, we expect(More)
