BANGALORE, INDIA: Car maker Renault has selected Automotive Ethernet BroadR-Reach Conformance and Performance test solution of Spirent Communications to develop next generation in-vehicle networks for connected cars.

Spirent’s automotive Ethernet BroadR-Reach conformance and performance test solution is part of a portfolio of solutions for automotive, systems and device manufacturers, enabling them to build new connected car features into next-generation vehicles.

Current in-vehicle networks are unable to provide the capacity or transmission speed to implement the new features sought by drivers. Driver assistance features such as 360° video cameras and advanced driver assist systems require new networking, which will also provide cost and efficiency benefits to both users and manufacturers.

“Renault is at the forefront of technology and is constantly looking to provide drivers and passengers with new features to create a ‘Passion for Life.’ Automotive Ethernet will help provide a lot of these features and benefits,” said Alain Couvreux, EE architecture expert leader of Renault.

“Spirent and Renault are collaborating to verify, that, high quality new features can be delivered to vehicle users in a timely manner,” said Pete Nicholson, general manager of Spirent’s Automotive Business Unit. “Spirent solutions are used extensively in the IT and telecoms industries. As the automotive industry builds more connected cars, our knowledge and solutions will help to implement the vehicles of the future.”
