New solution allows remote access of a Media Hub over Ethernet
LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AllGo, a leading Automotive software provider for Media, Connectivity, Driver Monitoring, and Molex, a leading global manufacturer of connected mobility solutions, have teamed up on development of an Infotainment Head unit solution to remotely access devices connected to a Media Hub through an Ethernet Gateway.
With ethernet emerging as the network of choice and in-car connectivity architectures evolving to a zone-based architecture, there is a need for accessing peripherals connected to a zonal gateway remotely over ethernet.
“As automotive OEMs work to develop cars of the future, our collaboration with AllGo helps deliver the versatile infotainment drivers and passengers want, including sophisticated graphic displays and USB connectivity with streaming content,” said Dave Atkinson, director of business development for connected mobility solutions, Molex. “With high throughput and low latency, the customizable and scalable Molex OTG Hubs and Media Modules deliver best-in-class hardware and software for autonomous vehicles.”
“We are pleased to offer solutions that solve the media content access challenges arising out of distributed high speed in-vehicle connectivity,” said K. Srinivasan, CEO of AllGo. “Our work with Molex for the development of media access solutions over high speed Ethernet networks enables us to solve media connectivity challenges of connected and autonomous vehicles.”
The demonstration setup consists of a High-speed Molex Ethernet Gateway to which a Media Hub, enabled with AllGo OTGHub Technology, is connected. The Media Hub has USB ports and is Wireless enabled, to support Wired and Wireless CarPlay and Android Auto technologies. A Head unit running Android is connected to the Gateway over Ethernet.
The demonstration showcases high throughput and low latency demanding CarPlay and Android auto working remotely, using AllGo’s USB over Ethernet technology. An iPhone or Android phone connected to the Media Hub over USB or Wi-Fi shall be remotely accessed by the Head unit to do CarPlay or Android auto, without compromising on the throughput and latency requirements.
This technology will be demonstrated at CES 2019 from January 8 – 11, 2019 at AllGo Westgate Hospitality Suite #473, Tech East. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org to know more about AllGo demonstrations at CES2019. For additional information, please visit: www.allgosystems.com
