LTE may be applicable to in-car infotainment. For computer-aided driving, depending on a cellular phone network may not be a very good idea. For time critical, short range communication may be enough. If LTE is considered, I guess the installation and un-installation of the equipment has to be somewhat easy.

So we are going to embed a specific wireless technology in an expensive device which has a lifetime of ten to twenty years on the road? Why not instead build a logical networking structure which can adapt to new physical interfaces as they evolve? Maybe we could even make those interfaces upgradeable so that the car doesn't go obsolete after a year or so? Larry M.
