Executive Summary

Basically, the signal delivery and quality of sensor data is of growing importance for modern automotive control applications. The use of analog signaling, which is the actual state of realization in many cases, is sensitive to the time variant effects mentioned before. This time variance is hard to consider for the control system development. In this paper, the authors will analyze the role of the sensor in the signal supply chain and discuss approaches for digital sensor ECU communication and their potential to establish a link. The increasing legal requirements for safety, emission reduction, fuel economy and onboard diagnosis systems push the market for more innovation solutions with rapidly increasing complexity.
