Low Latency Communication in Service Oriented Networks 2009-01-0917
Safety-critical systems often lack scalability and exchangeability between OEMs and different suppliers. Although standards like AUTOSAR ease the development process, data exchanged on the network is subject to misinterpretation and programming faults during the development phase. Therefore this paper describes a way to abstract the needs of several communication networks used (e.g. Ethernet, FlexRay, CAN) from the software development process.
Especially the integration of advanced driver assistance systems will enforce distribution of functional components and the exchange of sensor data necessary to track the status of the vehicle.
