Automotive embedded systems are distributed throughout modern vehicles using multiple vehicle networks partitioned across a variety of different electronic modules. As more complex control systems are used in automobiles, more distributed automotive embedded systems will be needed.
This book contains 88 papers covering the past seven years (2001-2007) of research on the varying aspects of distributed embedded systems. Topics covered include:
The book also includes editor Ronald K. Jurgen's introduction ("Distributed Embedded Systems: The Key to Future Automotive Electronics") and a concluding section on the trends impacting future distributed automotive embedded systems.
