High Spirit at Second MOST Forum

logoThe second MOST Forum took place on March 23rd, 2010, in Frankfurt, Germany. 150 professionals from the automotive electronics industry and academia participated in the very informative conference and visited the accompanying exhibition. The broad international audience was composed of attendees from Europe as well as India, Japan, South Korea, and the United States. "Besides the OEM's perspective and discussion of the ongoing MOST150 development and production launch, the message of the MOST Forum concentrated on two aspects: flexible means of connectivity to the MOST network and the readiness of MOST150 for new applications beyond pure infotainment," said Dr. Christian Thiel, MOST Cooperation Administrator. "The conference marks the kickoff for the MOST future in proving the technology's compliance to new connectivity interfaces and functionalities." Response was positive overall: the attendees very much appreciated the high quality of the conference. They were enthusiastic about the informative and interesting presentations and looked forward to future MOST events.

In the well attended exhibition area, various companies presented their innovative MOST solutions and applications.
