With its Smart Antenna (see image), Hirschmann Car Communication presents a technology that 'intelligently' combines a transceiver, tuner and antenna in one single unit. This enables the Smart Antenna to meet the requirements for new system architectures by connecting different services such as radio, GPS, mobile telephony, eCall, TV and car-to-X in a central location away from the head unit. The antenna offers automotive manufacturers an effective basic technological framework that enables them to quickly integrate new standards, architectures and customer demands for infotainment and communication services into vehicles in a scalable manner. The Smart Antenna consists of a roof antenna and a control unit that contains the tuner and transceiver and detects and decodes different mobile radio services. By doing so, it takes over the classic functions of the head unit, which no longer needs to be completely replaced in the case of updated radio standards. A bus system is used to connect the Smart Antenna to the head unit.
