Integrated Chassis Management: Introduction into BMW's Approach to ICM
This paper is supposed to address the BMW approach to the challenge of integrating chassis control systems and it highlights the major issues that have to be addressed. It points out possible solutions for scalable functional and hardware configurations for variable chassis control system combinations. A short outlook is given at possible functional benefits of an integrated structure. Finally, aspects such as components costs (e. g. for sensors and ECUs) as well as reactions on system failures and degradability have to be looked at.
