Adaptive automotive communications solutions of 10 years lifetime enabled by ETSI RRS software reconfiguration technology
The vehicles typically have a lifetime of several years, possibly even longer than 10 years, over which communication technology will almost certainly evolve dramatically. The challenge of automotive communication platform is to ensure that a radio communication component remains relevant over the entire lifetime of a vehicle. A highly efficient software reconfiguration solution is introduced in this paper. ETSI Reconfiguration Radio System technology provides a suitable framework for automotive communication platform which allows to either add or replace entire Radio Access Technologies or to upgrade specific components across any of the entire layers.
