Distributed Realtime Processing in Automotive Networks 900696
The formulation of software tasks as parallel processes allows their implementation within distributed microcontrollers. The requirements for Automotive Networks to support these applications are discussed. By introduction of a locality measure, a classification of networks can be made either into interactive distributed realtime processing or into classical communication.
Given a sufficiantly small locality, the physical network extension does not have an impact on the implementation. A concept i presented how to integrate process dispachting and synchronization. Based upon this concept, functions may be formulated independant of their location in a specific microcontroller.
