Elektrobit, Jaguar Land Rover suggest Plug & Play automotive network: Page 3 of 3

October 03, 2016 // By Julien Happich
In a joint presentation at IEEE-SA's Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day, Michael Ziehensack (Elektrobit) and Hari Parmar (Jaguar Land Rover) shared their views on how a scalable and flexible E/E network should look like in the future.

This is not all, the Automotive Plug & Play network should allow for the dynamic integration of low speed networks (CAN, LIN, FlexRay), offering functions of the devices on these networks as services in the Ethernet network, via a gateway taking care about service discovery and conversion from signal based to service-based communication.

The gateway would be automatically configured knowing that devices might be connected to different low speed networks depending on the vehicle variant and feature set, creating a device proxy on the gateway for each device that might be connected to the low speed network. Data from the devices detected by the proxy would then be converted and passed onto the Ethernet network as services.

The two companies have built a concept demonstrator consisting of multiple hardware setups and test sequences to validate their new concept. They are also planning to share their findings early 2017, with a technical whitepaper that they hope will serve as basis for standardization.
