Integrate and Implement the Local Interconnect Network in the Adaptive Front-Lighting System 2006-01-0863

This article main has discussed the design and the manufacturing of integrating Local Interconnect Network (LIN) and the Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS); in the headlamp controller part we have applied the LIN2.0 Single-Master/Multi-Slave framework. In this experiment we use the host controller as Master's node, and the right & left headlamps and the auxiliary angle lamp to play the Slave duty. In addition, sensors installed in the car's system include the steering-wheel turning angle using the Controller-Area-Network (CAN2.0) interface and the automobile's horizontal sensing signal. Therefore, the main controller of headlamp is the gateway of CAN and LIN, applied to exchange information between the different networks.
