Automotive Informative System: Electronic Dashboard As Central Unit 840493
The achievements and experience gained in the field of household electronic controllers and “on power line” data transmission, have allowed the Zanussi Group to develop a complete car dashboard with integrated electronic instrumentation and alarm/control system. The design requirements for automotive electronic systems are in fact similar to those for household appliances: low cost, high reliability, easy man-machine interface techniques.
These themes are better discussed in the paper: “Subsystems in the car: integration of functions and technologies” (1).
This paper describes, in particular, the electronic control system, with regard to: - methods followed in working out product definition, - system solutions, - component choices.
