Connected Carsdriving the future of smart transporation
Connected cars means a lot more than just Internet access or even wireless local area networks. The automotive industry is on the brink of an Internet of Things (IoT) revolution, with Gartner predicting 250 million connected vehicles by 2020.
In the age of autonomous and connected vehicles – remote connectivity to provide assistance, security and safety above all, the ongoing challenge is aggregating connected vehicles streams and distributing them in real time as needed.
SURF enables this revolution by providing streaming and distribution of real-time video feeds from on-board cameras to different network services during dynamic and changing network conditions with extremely low latency.
With an expertise in embedded solutions and real-time video, Surf is solving video connectivity for the connected car economy.
Upstream Overall Bandwidth
LTE (4G and 5G) networks are great in “peek” conditions, but mobile network speed is limited and inconsistent
Unpredictable Packet Loss
TCP retransmissions use excessive bandwidth and lead to a “spiral death”
Jitter & DelayBuffering in routes and network blocking cause delay in transmitted video signal
Sudden Upstream Congestion
Internet services using uplink bandwidth or multiple cars in the same cellular cell
