Exhibiting at IEEE’s Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day which took place in Paris this year, OGEAR Japanese National project ran a demo of a 1Gbit/s automotive Ethernet stereoscopic ADAS across 15 meters of Plastic Optical Fibre (POF).
The Japanese Automotive Industry led by JASPAR organization is running a three years national funded project to develop the next generation optical networks in automotive. The first step in this race will be 1 Gbps over Plastic Optical Fiber and the chosen technology has been KDPOF´s Gigabit over POF technology.
The advantages of POF over other copper-based alternatives are well shown in the following video from the OGEAR council shown at the latest Paris Ethernet & IP Conference held in September 2016
