Client/Server Architecture-Managing New Technologies for Automotive Embedded Systems-A Joint Project of Daimler-Benz and Ibm 98C014
This paper presents an approach to the design of automotive applications based on the client/server architecture, which has been well established in office automation. The basic client/server model is first discussed in the context of automotive requirements. This new function oriented approach is then compared to the previous, device oriented approach. After the introduction of basic components the communication mechanism is discussed with regard to the fundamental procedures, data representation and protocol implementation. Its usage is then explained by an example. Finally, after presenting the results of this study, there is an outlook to future work as well as to possible collaboration with others partners in order to achieve further standardization.
