Connected Vehicle Professional I – Ecosystem, Functions, Mobility, Communication Protocols, Software and Hardware Architectures will focus on Connected Vehicle foundations, and application components. This is followed by transportation and market trends with defined impacts of current and projected connected vehicle applications. Ensuring is connected vehicle communication protocols, purpose and areas of use and highlighting global concerns and impacts. Connectivity enabling technologies are presented in generational progression from past to current and projected future implementations. Connected vehicle software architecture follows with illustrated CAN Bus and telematics overviews and innovator informed instruction as affecting connectivity design, development and implementation. Finally hardware architecture involving telematics and modems with emphasis on associated standards, requirements and usage benefits is addressed. The course serves as a sound foundation for added in-depth exposure to connected vehicle technologies in the following two courses leading to certification. Learning content equates to 25 hours instructor led class / 5 hours of materials & exercise instruction.
