Mixed Criticality on Controller Area Network

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


An increasingly important trend in the design of real-time and embedded systems is the integration of components with different levels of criticality onto a common hardware platform. Where the platform incorporates a communication media it is necessary for that media to be able to safely and efficiently transfer messages of different criticality levels. In this paper we consider the Controller Area Network (CAN), and define mixed criticality protocols that could form the basis of a Trusted Network Component for CAN. Sufficient response-time analysis is derived for these protocols and an optimal priority assignment scheme is provided. Evaluations illustrate the benefits of the schemes.
