The purpose of the recommended practices and protocol definitions in this area is to provide equipment manufacturers and component suppliers with common methods for supporting functional safety design across manufacturers and components that share a SAE J1939 network. This will maintain one of the main design goals of SAE J1939 which is to allow for plug and play systems even in the areas of the system that involve functional safety. SAE J1939 will create network related guidelines and recommendations to facilitate system designers in achieving functional safety levels while designing their products. This will be limited to the network aspects that influence the functional safety design.
