Robert Krul, "AUTOSAR Win32 CAN Module," Bachelor Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Friedrich–Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg (FAU), August 2008. (Advisors: Thomas Obeth, Robert Leibinger and Falko Dressler)


AUTOSAR is the upcomming standard for ECUs in the automobile industry. The company Elektrobit offers a complete AUTOSAR solution for different hardware modules, the EB tresos AutoCore. In order to be able to perform integration and testing on PCs, it supports Microsoft Windows in addition to microcontrollers. But no driver to access the CAN-Bus existed for this system. However, since CAN is the most frequently Bus standard used in the automotive industry, such a driver was needed. This thesis therefore discussed the requirements of an AUTOSAR CAN driver and their realization by means of an API to access CAN hardware, and a prototype of this module has been implemented. To do so the ASW Client Interface Framework was used, an abstract interface to access different CAN Hardware. To accomplish this a wrapper was used to connect the AUTOSAR driver, which is written in C, to the C++ interface. Additionaly, some functionality of a standard complient AUTOSAR driver, which is unsupported by the interface, could be emulated. Although there are some limitations, like having to use a specific CAN controller (PCAN-USB), the module developed here can be used to perform tests of AUTOSAR applications with Windows. In the future it could also be used to emulate limitations of different microcontrollers in Windows, for example for rapid prototyping application development.
