[802.3_DIALOG] Call for interest - Multi-Gig Automotive Ethernet PHY

Dear Colleagues,

The following request for agenda time for a call for interest has been received from Steve Carlson. It will be discussed at the IEEE 802 LMSC November 2016 Plenary meeting in San Antonio, TX, USA. If you have any questions please get in touch with either Steve Carlson <scarlson@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> or myself directly.

Advanced Electronic Architectures for autos are being designed using 100BASE-T1 and 1000BASE-T1, and PoDL to support Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) with fully-autonomous operation as the end goal. This level of performance requires supercomputer-levels of processing power with corresponding high-performance sensor networks. 4K and 8K uncompressed video streams for machine vision and infotainment, radar, LIDAR, and ultrasonic sensors must all be "fused" into a coherent picture of the car's external environment.

In-vehicle networks supporting operation at multi-gigabit speed will be required to carry this traffic. Due to the long design and qualification cycles, work needs to start now to insure that these solutions will be available when needed.


The call for interest will take place during the IEEE 802.3 Opening Plenary on the morning of Monday 7th November. A call for interest consensus building meeting has been scheduled to occur from 18:30 to 19:30 on the evening of Tuesday 8th November. The vote to determine if a Study Group will be formed will take place at the IEEE 802.3 Closing Plenary on the afternoon of Thursday 10th November.

Best regards,
David Law, Chair, IEEE 802.3 Ethernet Working Group
