The MIPI Alliance, an international organisation that develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries, has formed an Automotive Birds of a Feather (BoF) Group. The purpose is to solicit industry input from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers to enhance existing or develop new interface specifications for automotive applications.The group is open to both MIPI Alliance member and non-member companies to represent the broader automotive ecosystem.
“Automakers already rely on MIPI Alliance’s industry-standard interfaces to enable a wide variety of applications, including collision mitigation and avoidance, infotainment and navigation. This call for participation helps ensure we cast a wide net to capture expertise to aid with extending existing and shape future MIPI specifications and collectively help realise the vision of how connected cars and automotive applications will evolve over the next decade. Just as mobile handset manufacturers benefited from the standardisation that MIPI Alliance has provided, automotive OEMs would similarly benefit,” said Matt Ronning, chair of the MIPI Alliance Automotive Subgroup and the Automotive BoF.
