Connected Car Plattform - Lesswire turns the car into a networked platform


Berlin, 08/2013. The networking of vehicles as a key part of modern mobility concepts is causing a stir among automotive manufacturers: the integration of a new eco system and its place in the value chain are calling the current business model into question. Nobody these days wants to be without cloud applications and the latest smartphone – not even when driving around in the car. This realisation is forcing automotive manufacturers to think again, as it concerns the entire eco system surrounding automotive production.

Connected Car Platform from Lesswire – presenting CCU-3

Fast, reliable and cost-effective connected-car solutions will be a worldwide driver of growth in the 21st century. The requirements of a connectivity that is as comprehensive as possible, in other words networking the driver and vehicle with the Internet, the manufacturer, other vehicles and the environment, will fundamentally change the processes, if not the business model itself, of the automotive manufacturers. With the Connected Car Platform, CCU-3, Lesswire offers a platform for various application fields – based on a modular design principle, each customer is thus able to compose their individual networking requirements for communication inside and outside the vehicle.

The Connected Car Platform supports the current mobile telephony standards GPRS/UMTS/LTE as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and WLAN IEEE802.11abgn.  Car safety and traffic efficiency applications are supported by adding a real time car2car communication module based on the new WLAN IEEE802.11p and ETSI ITS G5 standards. Add-ons for digital radio according to the DAB standard and TV reception under the DVB-T standard are also possible. These are connected to the vehicle electronics via CAN and Ethernet.
