Redefining Automotive Connectivity with Zenoh

| 3 min read

The automotive industry is rapidly evolving and it’s moving towards connected and autonomous vehicles. This evolution demands robust communication protocols more than ever. Enter Eclipse Zenoh, an Eclipse Foundation open source project and a protocol set to redefine vehicle-to-anything (V2X) communication. It aims to revolutionize software-defined vehicle architectures.

This month, we’re thrilled to announce a series of webinars. These sessions will explore Zenoh’s potential for the automotive industry. They will delve into Zenoh’s capabilities, its role in addressing current challenges, and its promising future in shaping the automotive landscape. Additionally, we’ve detailed the features we’re planning to release in 2024 on our website.

Tackling Vehicle-to-Anything Communication (V2X) Challenges with Zenoh

Currently, vehicle connectivity heavily relies on the MQTT protocol. This protocol has been around for over 20 years. However, it presents strong topological limitations and lacks support for edge computing.

Moreover, its dependence on TCP+TLS leads to reconnection storms and congestion management challenges with video streams. It’s widely agreed that this protocol is unsuitable for next-generation connected vehicles and advanced ADAS

Zenoh has emerged as a key protocol in the automotive sector. It’s gaining traction for in-vehicle communication. Its main appeal lies in its ability to operate from microcontrollers to data centers. It covers the entire cloud-to-device continuum. This positions Zenoh uniquely as a crucial connectivity protocol for connected vehicles, making ZettaScale a significant player in the market.

This webinar will elucidate how Zenoh and the Zetta Platform address the challenges in vehicle connectivity. More importantly, it will discuss how they support the intricate use cases of advanced driver-assistance systems and autonomous vehicles.

Zenoh for Software Defined Vehicle Architectures

Historically, vehicle architectures have been built around the AUTOSAR family of standards.

However, with the automotive industry’s increasing softwarization, the complexity and dynamicity of car software have grown. This growth reveals limitations in existing frameworks. It also causes integration difficulties and SOP delays.

The research community, in collaboration with the industry, has sought alternatives. These alternatives offer the right abstractions, performance, predictability, and flexibility for next-generation vehicles. Initiatives like the Eclipse SDV have been established. They foster open innovation and drive convergence toward an open-source framework supporting future vehicle architectures.

This webinar will shed light on Zenoh’s role in the SDV ecosystem!

It will highlight its current capabilities for vehicle architectures. It will also discuss how recent innovations, particularly Zenoh-Flow, can further support vehicle software needs.
