FlexRay Parameter Set Experimental Verification of Communication Stability 2008-01-0111
This paper proposes a possible test stand for the verification of a chosen FlexRay configuration parameter set. The goal of the described test stand was to verify the reliability and efficiency of the FlexRay communication for a given system topology by injecting reproducible disturbances. Fault injection is a fundamental step for testing network behavior and shall be done prior to the application development. Changing network communication parameters at some later stage may lead to problems such as additional reprogramming effort, waste of resources and significant project delays. Therefore, the timely testing of the FlexRay communication stability is vital for safeguarding a smooth development process.
