SeaTTronics: An Integrated Smart Seat 2001-01-3353

SeaTTronics is a new automotive seat system including different mechatronic units connected by bus controlling the seat position, seat movement, seat heating and new devices like ventilation, and massage among others.
SeaTTronics is based on a distributed control approach: one switch mechatronic module (gateway) connecting the seat to the rest of the car through CAN bus and mechatronic “smart nodes” with the actuator for each motor or other actuators interfaced through LIN-bus.
This distributed architecture based on LIN-bus allows the whole system to be more flexible and modular. This modularity allows differentiation across vehicle platforms and allows options to be added in all moment of the design with a good improvement of time to market.
