Demirci, Ali
The increasing use of electronic components in today’s automobiles demands more powerful in-vehicle network communication protocols. FlexRay protocol, which is expected be the de-facto standard in the near future, is a deterministic, fault tolerant and fast protocol designed for in vehicle communication. In the near future, safety critical X-by-Wire applications will be available in the automobiles and FlexRay networks can be used to provide communication for the Electronic Control Units (ECUs) that perform related functions of X-by-Wire applications. In this thesis the performance of the FlexRay networks with various communication scenarios is evaluated in a real time environment and the results are presented. Communication scenarios investigate both static and dynamic segment of the FlexRay and allow evaluating the capabilities of the protocol. Several performance metrics such as utilization, static slot allocation, jitter are defined for the evaluation of the results.

Öztürk, Can; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Schmidt, Klaus Werner; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
The increasing use of electronic components in today’s automobiles demands more powerful in-vehicle network communication protocols. FlexRay protocol, which is expected to be the de-facto standard in the near future, is a deterministic, fault tolerant and fast protocol designed for in vehicle communication. For proper operation of a FlexRay network the communication schedule needs to be computed and the nodes need to be configured before startup. Current software tools that are geared towards FlexRay only d...
An Investigation of Link Quality Assessment for Mobile Multi-hop and Multi-rate Wireless Networks
Zhou, Jinglong; Jacobsson, Martin; Onur, Ertan; Niemegeers, Ignas (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2012-07-01)
Wireless ad hoc networks will be an important component in future communication systems. The performance of wireless ad hoc networks can be improved by link quality-aware applications. Wireless link quality is dynamic in nature, especially in mobile scenarios. Therefore, accurate and fast packet delivery ratio estimation is a prerequisite to good performance in mobile, multi-hop and multi-rate wireless ad hoc networks. In this paper, we propose a novel packet delivery ratio estimation method that improves t...
Cooperative Communications in Future Home Networks
Genc, Zulkuf; Rizvi, Umar H.; Onur, Ertan; Niemegeers, Ignas (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-05-01)
The basic idea behind cooperative communications is that mobile terminals collaborate to send data to each other. This effectively adds diversity in the system and improves the overall performance. In this paper, we investigate the potential gains of cooperative communication in future home networks. We derive analytical expressions for the error probability of binary phase shift keying (BPSK) signals over Nakagami-m fading channels in a multi relay communication network. Following to the analytical study, ...

Danışman, Batuhan; Sevaioğlu, Osman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, the conventional low voltage power line communication methods is investigated in the axis of automated meter reading applications and the classification and experimental verification of common noise types for low voltage power line communication network. The investigated system provides the real time transmission of electricity consumption data recorded by electricity meters, initially to a local computer via a low voltage line through a low speed PLC (Power Line Carrier) environment and sub...
