In-vehicle communication


Modern vehicles are designed with powerful communication devices that enable real-time exchange of driving data with each other without a third-party server. The communication may cover the traffic status of adjacent roads and the steering intention of the vehicle’s driver. This could provide assistance with driving tasks based on the steering intention of the vehicle, such as lane changing, overtaking, left/right-hand turning and so on. This lecture is to provide the understanding the following communication protocols:

  ● CAN

  ● FlexRay

  ● LIN

  ● MOST
