FlexRay comes onto the road with single-channel high-speed power-train, driver-assistance, and comfort automotive electronics applications. On the new BMW X5, FlexRay is used in suspension control, allowing for a gentle learning phase with low risk for engineers and developers before applying the fault-tolerant, deterministic protocol to safety relevant driving functions using two communication channels and bus guardian supervision.
In developing FlexRay applications, there are five basic steps that design engineers can apply leading to a robust network topology.
