The BRAKE Project - Centralized Versus Distributed Redundancy for Brake-by-Wire Systems 2002-01-0266
This paper presents the objectives and preliminary results of the BRAKE project - a joint effort of Delphi Automotive Systems, Infineon Technologies, Volvo Car Corporation and WindRiver. The objective of this project is to use microelectronics technologies to design a distributed Brake-by-Wire system including:
A distributed fault tolerant system for enhanced safety
An extension of the OSEK based operating system for a distributed time triggered architecture
An open interface between vehicle control, and brake system control
The results comprise the requirements, interface specification (see ), a full simulation model, a hardware-in-the-loop bench, and a demonstration vehicle. The application has been developed using advanced automatic code generation for Infineon's TriCore based automotive microcontrollers.
