Cooperate with other organizations to accelerate standardization and growth
MOST Cooperation as a standardization body has been instrumental for the success of MOST Technology. However, cooperation with other automotive, industrial and consumer bodies is required to achieve wider acceptance in the market. Users of MOST Technology will benefit from wider acceptance as this would yield in faster time-to-market, higher quality and larger volumes, hence in an even more competitive MOST Technology solution.
In 2015, MOST Cooperation presented the integration of AUTOSAR within the MOST network. A MOST/AUTOSAR gateway demonstrator connected the vehicle network with a MOST network using AUTOSAR mechanisms and tunneling of communication of two AUTOSAR applications through a MOST network, either through the MOST Control Channel or over the MOST Ethernet Packet Channel. Both scenarios provide for a partial integration of a MOST network into the AUTOSAR standard. In the solution presented by ETAS, existing SWCs of the AUTOSAR stack, as well as the configuration mechanisms provided by AUTOSAR and the corresponding tools, may be reused as far as possible. With some extensions, for example for handling the dynamic MOST network management, the integration of MOST mechanisms into the AUTOSAR standard can be done in a quite straight-forward manner.
One additional example is the collaborative approach of MOST Cooperation, CI+ and Microchip to offer customers a complete, easy-to-use, and cost-efficient solution to transport the latest CI+ protected digital video inside automobiles. MOST Cooperation released its latest MOST Stream Transmission Specification that includes support for the MOST CI+ Interim
