Comparing the Harness Cost of Hardwired and Networked Integrated Door Systems 2009-01-1091

The objective of the research discussed in this paper is to propose a methodology for comparing candidate electrical architectures on a cost basis at the very beginning of the architecture design process. To achieve this objective, historical data concerning the cost of a wiring harness for a driver’s door electrical system is analysed along with information on an electrical architecture for the door system of a small four door passenger car. The study is focused around a driver’s door electrical system based on LIN and hardwired integration. However, it is concluded that the results are applicable to other types of automotive electrical architectures.
