INTERCONNECT: Integrated Time Sensitive Networking and Legacy Communications in Predictable Vehicle-platforms
Overall goal of the project is to develop novel techniques, frameworks, industrial tools & validators to provide a holistic model-based software development environment for distributed software functions on predictable vehicle-platforms that efficiently utilize integrated TSN and legacy communication devices and subsystems.
The functionality advancements, innovation and novel features in modern vehicles require numerous high data-rate sensors (e.g. lidars). These sensors generate hundreds of megabytes of data per second that needs to be communicated among onboard computers with predictable low latencies. The emerging IEEE Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) standards provide a promising solution to address these requirements. TSN provides a high-speed and low-latency backbone onboard network that can connect to legacy communication devices and subsystems.
This project embraces the novel possibility of seamlessly integrating TSN and low-cost legacy onboard communications to create an attractive solution for next-generation vehicles.
The aim of INTERCONNECT is to develop novel techniques, frameworks, industrial tool prototypes and demonstrators for holistic model-based development of vehicular software functions on predictable platforms that use seamlessly integrated TSN and legacy onboard communications.
