eeNews Europe: Where is the "sweet spot" for future MOST applications?
Seidl: The sweet spot will not change much from what we already have implemented. MOST is extremely well suited for audio streaming and distributing audio data across the vehicle. In addition, we use it to interconnect the Head Unit with the Rear Seat Unit e.g. in our Mercedes S-Class with multi seat entertainment.
