Quobis running a videoconferencing tool in cars

Quobis was demonstrating Sippo videoconferencing tool running in an onboard unit of PSA (Peugeot Citroën group) as a result of the R&D project Sat2car. Connectivity was tested from different places and network conditions in order to validate this technology for different use cases on connected cars. 

Role of Quobis in Sat2car

Quobis is taking part of Sat2Car project with the objective of implementing a system for connected vehicle services via satellite communications.

Quobis is contributing to the design and implementation of a set of multimedia services based on WebRTC and our solution Sippo wac. It will allow real time communications integrated in the board screen of the car and it will provide assistance and videoconference services to users from a professional assistance service.

The main functionalities will be audio/video conference to an agent that can provide customer service or assurance services among others. This application will also provide data from the car to the agent like GPS location, speed, etc. In case of a crash, the videoconference will be established automatically. Besides, an infotainment and travel entertainment service will be implemented in the customer application to allow the access to video content both for entertainment and support services.
