Automated Configuration of TDMA-Based and Event-Triggered Vehicle-Networks with Respect to Real-Time Constraints 2008-01-0276
Today's vehicle networks are mainly based on the event-triggered CAN-bus. In future FlexRay, which is a TDMA-based bus, will more and more be used for the implementation of safety-relevant real-time systems due to its determinism. In order to configure a CAN-based network the priorities of the messages sending via the external bus have to be defined. In this paper an approach will be presented allowing automated priority determination. Subsequently it will be shown how to adapt this method to automated cycle configuration in case of a FlexRay-based system. In order to ensure determinism not only in TDMA-based but also in event-triggered networks, a method will be presented adapting priorities of messages intending to exceed their deadline. This can be easily realized without changing the CAN protocol.
