Gateway Application for Automotive Network System “BEAN” 1999-01-1278

In applying a LAN to automotive electronics systems, an optimal protocol has been adopted for each system so far, such as body electronics system, entertainment system, service system and power train system. As low cost communication protocol “BEAN” (Body Electronics Area Network; SAE paper 970297) adopted to wider range of functions on vehicle, ECU's numbers are increased which have BEAN communication and that is branched to plural communication networks. We have succeeded in rationalization of those network systems with the gateway function on a delegated ECU for each LAN system on vehicle. And this system also realized the connection to after market products by data exchange through the gateway function, while securing vehicle fail-safe.
