through bridging to other communication protocols.

Vehicle communication needs are rapidly increasing.

On-board processing power and data flow capacity need to increase massively to process data for driver assistance systems, automated driving, infotainment and telematics.
 

Omni-present data connectivity of mobility systems requires vehicles to communicate with other vehicles, infrastructure and cloud services.

Apex.Ida holistically integrates all communication needs of mobility
applications handling large amounts of data.

Internal vehicle communication

MW-internalComm-02.png

Apex.Ida integrates existing communication protocols 

  • Zero-copy communication 

  • SOME/IP protocol

  • DDS middleware

  • CAN bus

External vehicle communication

Apex.Ida also integrates cloud communication protocols such as MQTT.

Apex.Ida automatically selects the right protocol for the right use case, depending on the respective configuration.

Apex.Ida ensures optimal vehicle communication using a single interface.

Low latency through zero-copy data transport.

  • Latencies can add up quickly, e.g. in a perception pipeline, when using inter-process communication over the network stack (Black line).
     

  • Zero-copy communication via shared memory results in a constant low latency even for megabyte-sized messages (Green line).

Apex.Ida is application agnostic.
