I could imagine, that in the future some kind of automotive ethernet will replace CAN, LIN, Flexray and MOST. But this is a hot potato!

On one hand, the lighter the weight; the better the fuel efficiency. On the other hands, certain amount of weight is required to maintain the balance and the rigidness a vehicle. I am looking forward to some insights from professional with automobile industry background.

The kind of noise the electronics has to deal in a vehicle, is something that needs to be tamed. Auto electronics has to be extremely reliable as there are lives at stake.

Use wireless sensors with power harvesting. Even better weight savings :)
