The IPv6 e-Vehicle project was honored with Murai Award for innovative mobile technology Validation on the road started in June 2003, and so far, the project is getting noticed.
The IPv6 e-Vehicle research project recently received the Murai Award for innovative mobile technology from Jun Murai, the IPv6 Promotion Council Chairman and Keio University Professor. This award highlights the joint development by Cisco Systems and Renault Prospect & Research Division to enable a vehicle with IPv6 mobile connectivity and multiple applications, including:

  • End user/passenger Internet access.
  • Wireless connectivity within the vehicle to connect PDA and other wireless devices.
  • Wireless connectivity from the vehicle to infrastructures such as WiFi, GSM data, GPRS, while accommodating future radio systems.
  • In-vehicle diagnostic system: IP-enabling the alarm and general purpose diagnostic environment, allowing a central support center to monitor and initiate actions remotely.
  • Enhanced fleet management system based on "always-on, always reachable" concepts. GPS localization system carried and integrated onto the IP infrastructure, for enhanced real-time services based on actual position.
