The project laboratory aims to evaluate the reliability of in-vehicle communication and contribute to the realization of safe and secure automatic driving systems.

The project laboratory conducts research on high reliability technology for communication required for "autonomous car" and "connected car", links to international standard proposal through industry-academia-government collaboration, and provides test & consultation environment for international standard compliance.

In particular, focusing on the three pillars of hardware: EMC at the physical layer level, QoS above the data link layer, and security below the network layer, the project laboratory will develop high-immunity wired (optical fiber, copper wire, etc.) and wireless communication systems, as well as the integrated evaluation method for system integrity in the automotive environment.
