Will there be wider acceptance of the MOST framework? I certainly do think so. In-vehicle network will only become more and more popular and it is becoming common place for new cars to have a basic navigation function or audio system. As we want everything around us to become smarter, so do we want our cars to be smart as well. Thomas - http://www.carid.com

A network like MOST for entertainment purposes is an expensive luxury. The point at which it becomes a necessity is when 'driver assist' migrates into 'driver replacement'. Assist is a safety feature, which is at best a 'nice to have' for most people. There are niche markets where that will play well, but unless it is legislated or dirt cheap it will not go truly mass-market. When cars drive themselves through the aid of networks like MOST then it will migrate to commodity status. Larry M.
