Mecel Master Theses - Recently completed projects!
Mecel has several students working on their Master Thesis both in AUTOSAR and other areas. Two AUTOSAR related Master Theses have been finished recently.
Master Thesis: FlexRay redundancy in AUTOSAR
When implementing the redundant FlexRay communication we found out that it is not enough to use the provided FlexRay communication controller (CC) features available for supporting dual channel usage.
In laboratory experiments FlexRay frames were manipulated by random electromagnetic fields so that false messages, with manipulated data and CRC, was accepted by the CC and forwarded to upper layer. We capture this problem with a synchronized receive and compare functionality that was implemented in the FrIf module.
Experiment inducing false positives on a FlexRay channel.
Master Thesis: Connecting AUTOSAR VFB to Simulink environment
The Master Thesis has, based on the Picea PC VFB implementation, evaluated the possibility to execute an SW-C in its native environment (Simulink) using the Windows host OS inter process communication framework.
Realizing this we have increased the visibility of the SW-C execution while we at the same time have reduced the development time.
