Top three Connected Vehicle applications a Broadcast/Multicast network can make more efficient: OTA software updates, constant RTK geolocation, and in-car infotainment.
We will take a deep dive into each of these automotive applications. Experts from the automotive and ATSC 3.0 broadcast communities will discuss the benefits and practical considerations toward implementation of each.
Constant RTK geolocation
Satellite delivery of centimeter (cm) accurate geolocation to Connected Vehicles requires error correction, often delivered through a LTE or 5G network which can get costly. The blanket coverage of a Broadcast/Multicast network could be much more efficient but what are the practicalities?
OTA software updates
Broadcast/Multicast could logically be a more cost-effective way to wirelessly deliver OTA firmware and software updates to CVs. What are the challenges of getting hardware needed to make this work? What are the software challenges after that?
A Broadcast/Multicast data network has the same propagation characteristics as traditional broadcast TV. A single broadcast tower can have a coverage diameter of 100 miles. How can this help in-car entertainment?
