Title
(EN) Autonomous vehicle network bandwidth bridging
Abstract
(EN)

A telematics controller is connected to a first modem to communicate over a wide-area network. An autonomous vehicle controller is connected to a second modem to communicate over the network, and is programmed to send autonomous vehicle commands determined using autonomous vehicle data to control the vehicle. A scheduler controller is programmed to direct the telematics controller and autonomous vehicle controller to offload autonomous vehicle data over the network using the first and second modems.
