The NAV Alliance was founded in 2018. The goal of the NAV Alliance is to develop network technologies for automated driving. The founding members of the NAV Alliance include Aquantia, Bosch, Continental, Nvidia and Volkswagen.
The NAV Alliance addresses the requirements for autonomous driving and develops corresponding solution proposals. There are several technical working groups that are developing specifications for the physical transmission technologies of automotive Ethernet with data rates of 25 Gbit/s and 50 Gbit/s, addressing EMC issues, defining the specifications for the components for the physical layer, and dealing with encapsulation and system control and management.
