System architectural interfaces forautonomous trucks
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis evaluates a proprietary interface developed by Scania that connects a third party developed autonomy solution to the electrical system of a Scania truck. The autonomy solution is developed for a mining application. While evaluating the interface the focus of the thesis narrows down to how to make the interface scalable and future proof. The content of this thesis is mainly based upon interviews and internal Scania documentation. In summary, the two main conclusions that could be drawn from this evaluation study are, that the interface needs to support a larger amount of requests from an external control to support that the interface is applicable in many areas. Secondly the idea of a modular electrical system must be carried on to autonomous applications as well and interface logic must be separated from core functionality of the electrical system.
