First steps in establishing the network object matrix of the vehicle network. This is about half-way through the detailed draft design of the network. Door, tailgate and rear-body and instrument proxy nodes are still to be defined.
Every node “owns” the devices that it connects to the vehicle network, along with the associated device states and the node’s internal management parameters.
This provides a rich set of status and diagnostic information that can be selectively used by other nodes in the vehicle network. All the exported information can be queried when trouble-shooting.
