Software tool development for the automated configuration of flexray networks for in vehicle communication

Öztürk, Can
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 deal with the configuration process. The schedule needs to be computed by a network designer manually and it is necessary to input the designed schedule and the configurable parameters by hand. This thesis improves upon a previous scheduling software to automatically compute the network schedule, and then generate a universally acceptable FIBEX file that can be imported to available software tools to produce the necessary FlexRay node configuration files.

Kızılay, Özgür; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
Today’s automobiles comprise an increasing number of electronic components. Some of these components are used for entertainment purposes and some of them are used for safety-critical application such as X-by-Wire that are implemented on electronic control units (ECUs). The safe data exchange among such ECUs has to be realized by a robust and reliable in-vehicle network protocol. In this context, FlexRay is one of the new generation in-vehicle network protocols which is already used in upper class series veh...

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. The current de-facto in-vehicle communication standard, CAN, and the future in-vehicle communication standard FlexRay will exist together in future cars. Data exchange between these two standards will be...

Gözcü, Ahmet Korhan; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
Dynamic Distributed Dependable Real-time Industrial communication Protocol family (D3RIP), has been proposed in the literature considering the periodic or event-based traffic characteristics of the industrial communication networks. D3RIP framework consists of two protocol families: Interface Layer (IL) protocol family, which is responsible for providing the accurate time-division multiple access (TDMA) on top of a shared-medium broadcast channel, and Coordination Layer (CL), which is defined to fulfill the...

Innovations in technology that have enabled efficient wireless tiny devices propelled the concept of Internet of Things. It is expected that mobile data traffic will experience 8-fold growth between 2015 and 2020 and the number of mobile connected devices will reach 11.6 billion by 2020. Main factors of this exponential growth and wide acceptance are the integration of several technologies and communications solutions such as wired and wireless sensor and actuator networks, next generation communication pro...
