A Demonstration System for a New Time-Triggered Sensor Network, Based on
Ph.D. Student, PEI Circuits and Systems Research Centre
University of Limerick
The IEEE 1451 family of standards defines a common interface for 'smart
transducers' allowing them to be adaptable to virtually any fieldbus or
control network on the market. IEEE 1451 has a wide range of industrial
applications, but its event-driven communication is inadequate for use
in the real-time deterministic systems that are becoming increasingly
prevalent. In this presentation, a real-time enhancement of the IEEE
1451 architecture is introduced. The time-driven (time-triggered)
communication is implemented through the replacement of the defined
transducer interface with TTCAN, which is a time-triggered development
of the existing CAN standard. This presentation outlines the IEEE 1451
and TTCAN standards and presents a prototype system that demonstrates
that a real-time, deterministic IEEE 1451 solution is both workable and
feasible. This work was presented at the 'Sensors and their Applications
XII' conference at the University of Limerick, September 2003.
