CEA Selects Safe Driving, IPv6 Implementation Standards for CESpec Program

Today, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® announced that two of its standards projects have been selected for the CESpec program, which features important industry standards at the 2014 International CES®. The projects address safe use of portable electronics while driving and implementation of IPv6 in consumer electronics (CE) products. Owned and produced by CEA, CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies and will run January 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The CESpec program aims to draw worldwide attention to important, new industry standards at CES. Standards selected for the 2014 CESpec program are expected to be completed by the 2015 International CES.

“We are delighted to have our important work on safe driving and IPv6 featured in the CESpec program. CEA formed both groups to address critical issues impacting our industry,” said Brian Markwalter, senior vice president of research and standards at CEA. “The safe driving working group efforts are encouraging the development of products that reduce the amount of time a driver must look away from the road as an alternative to regulating every possible distraction. The IPv6 working group was instrumental in bringing the industry together to ensure a seamless transition for businesses and consumers alike as the supply of IPv4 addresses becomes exhausted.”

Twenty-nine organizations joined CEA’s Driver Device Interface Working Group in June to develop industry standards and/or best practices for designing CE products to help maximize driver safety while in the car. The working group is chaired by James Tranchina, vice president of engineering at Voxx International. The group is collaborating on a recommended practice titled, “Guidelines for Reducing Visual-Manual Driver Distraction during Interactions with Portable or Handheld Electronic Devices.”

“I am thrilled that our efforts to address driver distraction have been selected for the CESpec program,” said Tranchina. “The work we’re doing is important to all drivers and featuring it at the largest annual tradeshow in the U.S. will help us get the word out.”

Fifteen organizations joined CEA in 2011 to form the IPv6 Working Group. The group coordinates CE manufacturers, service providers and retailers activities as the Internet transitions from IPv4 addressing to IPv6 ensuring Internet-enabled devices continue to operate without interruption. It is expected to result in a standard that defines necessary feature sets for several levels of IPv6 support, creating profiles for Basic, Basic-plus and Advanced IPv6-capable devices.

The simplest networking devices such as network printers, alarms and home automation systems are Basic devices that will support a limited set of IPv6 features. More Internet capability is appropriate for the Basic-plus profile group: optical disc players, game consoles, smart TVs and media servers. Advanced devices are those that need the most Internet capability and include PCs, tablets and smartphones.

The IPv6 Working Group is co-chaired by Hans Liu, director of software architecture at D-Link Systems Inc. and Dan Torbet, director of system engineering at ARRIS.

“IPv6 is the next generation of Internet protocol, and it’s being rolled out throughout the Web,” said Liu. “Our goal is to help speed this transition by providing guidance to consumer equipment manufacturers to ensure their products make maximum use of IPv6.”

“The more IPv6 capability is implemented in consumer products, the more efficiently Internet service can be delivered to consumers,” said Torbet. “We’re very happy to have this project featured as a CESpec and we look forward to demonstrating our work next year.”

CEA leads technology manufacturers in fostering CE industry growth by developing industry standards and technical specifications that enable new products to come to market and encourage interoperability with existing devices. CEA’s Technology & Standards program maintains an unmatched reputation as an effective and flexible standards making body accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
