(Fahrzeugnetze - Vertiefungsmodul WM 9)
Modern vehicles with highly distributed electronic devices, in particular sensors and actuators, require sophisticated networking technology with specific demands on reliability, data rate, fault tolerance and hardware features. Wired and wireless communication systems, such as CAN, Flexray or UWB, cope with these requirements in their specific fields of application.
Wireless communications technologies allow data exchange not merely between devices within a single vehicle but also between devices mounted in separate vehicles. Spontaneous networking between these vehicles allows the direct exchange of data without necessity of infrastructure. Thus, novel applications related to safety, efficiency and comfort will be enabled. But this also increases the necessity of adequate information management, routing strategies and medium exploitation methods.
The lecture will be divided into two essential parts, namely intra-vehicle networks and inter-vehicle networks discussing requirements, concepts and protocols of the specific field.
