How Will High-Speed Data Transform the Future of Transportation?

Cars are becoming "mobile big data centers", and getting information into and out of the vehicles quickly is becoming increasingly important for telematics, geo-positioning, V2X, software updates, infotainment, radar, lidar and for meeting overall data processing requirements. Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7 and WiGig High Speed Data Solutions will change the way cars receive and transmit data. We will discuss how these innovations ultimately will lead to the future success of the next generation of ADAS.

Cars are becoming “mobile big data centers” with requirements to process information from telematics, geo-positioning, lidar, radar, V2X, software updates, infotainment, and more. 

Getting data into and out of vehicles quickly is imperative for the success of autonomous driving, for vehicle-to-vehicle communication, pedestrian detection, traffic sign recognition, data downloading, etc.. Innovations in Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7 and WiGig High Speed Data Solutions are changing the way cars receive and transmit information. 

WiGig, short for Wireless Gigabit, is a wireless communication technology that operates in the 60 GHz frequency band. It is designed to provide high-speed wireless data transfer and low-latency connections between devices. 

Wi-Fi 6E is an extension of the Wi-Fi 6 standard that operates in the 6 GHz frequency band. It is designed to provide faster speeds, lower latency, and increased capacity compared to previous Wi-Fi generations. 

Wi-Fi 7 is the next significant advancement in connectivity, and promises even faster connections, lower latency, and the ability to efficiently manage more connections.

These innovations will lead to data transmission speeds that help ensure the future success of the next generation of ADAS.
