With increasing consumer demand for more entertainment and data exchange within the automobile, Delphi has collaborated on the development of a Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface between the automotive electrical system and external consumer equipment. Delphi's automotive USB consumer port allows for high rate communications of information and entertainment data including music streaming, audio/video, and passenger convenience systems. The USB interface is on its way to becoming a common automotive standard, prompting OEMs to place multiple ports throughout the vehicle interior for passenger convenience.

A main advantage of the system is that both the OEM and the customer can stay with standard automotive electrical system components and standard USB connectors. There is no need to integrate other hardware or software.
