A Requirements Specification Template of a Communication Network Based on CAN Protocol to Automotive Embedded Systems
This paper presents the results of studies that made possible to propose a particular contribution to improve the quality on developing automotive embedded systems through a requirements specification template of a communication network based on CAN protocol. The whole template structure is composed by sections that specify the controlling units, the subnetworks, the data dictionary and the general aspects of the communication network. A study case was performed to test the proposed template and a study of the requirements of an embedded automotive environment was specified. The conclusions of this study and the evaluation are presented and further studies are suggested. This template can be used by engineers and designers with industrial or scientific purposes.
