Visualization of Volvo Buses chassis electronic systems via CAN-bus
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis presents the development of a tool to visualize states and variables of chassis systems on Volvo Buses. The Electronic Control Units (ECUs) of the chassis systems are interconnected via Controller Area Networks (CAN). The systems are separate and the three networks are independent, but interconnected through a Master Control Module (MCM). The tool can simulate a bus on a desktop or be used for software verification of a real bus. The tool was developed on a 180 MHz ARM microcontroller to which a 7” Thin Film Transistor (TFT) Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) visualizes the data through text and pictures. Within the project, only key CAN messages were used to interface with the bus and only two push buttons and a potentiometers are used as user interface. These successfully demonstrated the functionality of the tool. Further development would include making use of the touch screen capabilities of the chosen display and add more CAN messages ability.
