The increasing use of electronic systems in automobiles instead of mechanical and
hydraulic parts brings about advantages by decreasing their weight and cost and
providing more safety and comfort. There are many electronic systems in modern
automobiles like antilock braking system (ABS) and electronic brakeforce distribution
(EBD), electronic stability program (ESP) and adaptive cruise control (ACC). Such
systems assist the driver by providing better control, more comfort and safety. In
addition, future x-by-wire applications aim to replace existing braking, steering and
driving systems. The developments in automotive electronics reveal the need for
dependable, efficient, high-speed and low cost in-vehicle communication. This report
presents the summary of a literature survey on in-vehicle communication networks.
Different in-vehicle system domains and their requirements are described and main invehicle communication networks that have been used in automobiles or are likely to be
used in the near future are discussed and compared with key references.
