2006 : A Case Study of Clock Synchronization in FlexRay

Author(s)
Alexander Hanzlik
Abstract
This paper presents a case study on the performance of a distributed clock synchronization algorithmused in Flexray, a communication protocol designed to meet the requirements of dependable, fault-tolerant real-time applications. The Flexray industry consortium drives forward the standardization of a fault-tolerant communication system for advanced automotive applications. In this case study we will analyze two different configurations for typical automotive applications by means of simulation. The focus of the simulation experiments is the assessment of performance and stability of the Flexray clock synchronization algorithm in the presence of varying clock drift rates. For the analysis we will use SIDERA, a simulation model for time-triggered distributed systems.
