How to Build Automotive Applications Based on the FlexRay® Communication System 2002-01-0439
The newly developed communication system FlexRay® - The Communication System for Advanced Automotive Control Applications and the typical applications that it is designated for impose high demands on the system development process due to characteristics such as distribution and fault-tolerance and thus require a tool-supported development approach.
This article gives an insight into a development process tailored to the particularities of FlexRay®-based real-time applications. The essential process steps are modeling and simulation on the one hand and scheduling and configuration on the other hand. Both steps are supported by software tools that substantially ease the process.
