Central Control Platform for Active Accident-Avoiding Vehicles 2007-01-1498
Active assistance systems, which actively intervene before dangerous situations occur, make highest demands on the central control platform regarding reliability. The conflict of goals between required integrity of the data and availability of the control unit cannot be solved with state-of-the-art approaches in automotive electronics. The presented adaptation of well established fly-by-wire concepts to the needs of the automotive industry seems to be a very promising approach. The new type of redundancy management, high computational power, standardized HW-SW interfaces, as well as a flexible design for different applications and a “close to production” degree of maturity, make the presented controller truly a central control platform for all kind of active accident avoiding vehicles.
