Interference Control for Integration of Vehicular Software Components


Publication Type:

Report - MRTC




Vehicular manufacturers want to reduce the number of electronic components in the vehicles foremost to reduce cost and complexity, but not to the price of de-creased functionality or quality. In this work we out-line a method to facilitate a reduction of hardware components in vehicles, through integration of large real-time software components to the same hardware platform. The focus is on controlling the interference caused by the integration, but practical issues as sys-tem architecture and hardware independency both in implementation and specification of components are also considered.
