Implement of Intelligent Node for Vehicles Based on FlexRay Bus


Article Preview

The car can meet the high demand of the security and stability of the system by using FlexRay bus, while it also can implement optimization of the cost. The paper introduces a system of nodes’ communication based on FlexRay technology, and the system constructed two nodes which are composed of main processors, communication controllers and bus transceivers. The paper implements the transmission of data between main processors and communication controllers by EBI (external bus interface). It is succeed in implementing the communication process of receiving data and sending data among different nodes. The results show that the data completely correct while the data rate is 10Mbps. Therefore, it verifies the reliability and real-time communication of FlexRay. And it also means that the designed node will play a significant role in X-By-Wire.
