Executive Summary—Pros and Cons in a Nutshell

Though Ethernet will eventually become the backbone of the in-vehicle communication network, there are certain unmet needs that must be addressed.

• Costs are reduced for connectivity and cable.
• Increased fuel efficiency because of weight reduction.
• Scalability and flexibility of an open network that can work across various vehicle domains.
• Proven technology that doesn't need further testing or validation.
• Controlled electromagnetic compatibility emissions (EMC) limit with low-cost, unshielded, twisted single-pair cable.
• Many suppliers are working on Ethernet-based hardware and software.
• Mass production of Ethernet-enabled devices will drastically reduce cost.

• Implementation cost currently limited to select high-end luxury makers on specific ADAS applications
• Current network implementation investments will hinder change in the near future.
• Value chain disruption from existing closed model, since new open model will be followed.
