Improved load distribution for controller area network

The main requirement for the design of the controller are network (CAN) is to guarantee that each message response time is smaller than their specified deadline. In practical in-vehicle applications, messages on CAN are released with offsets in order to avoid message bursts that lead to undesirably large response times. In this paper, new algorithms for the choice of suitable message offsets are developed and it is shown that these algorithms outperform existing algorithms.
