Network design software for E/E systems

See how network design unlocks the potential of heavy equipment E/E architectures, including an investigation into combining J1939 with ethernet


Heavy commercial equipment in an outdoor setting

Communication networks are a critical aspect of all modern heavy equipment. Complexity coming from electrification, advanced driver assistance and automation, fleet management, and V2X connectivity increases the demands on network communication design to a level that stresses traditional protocols and complicates existing design processes and methods. Design issues detected during physical testing or later risk negatively impacting program timing. Digital transformation allows manufacturers to detect those issues sooner and trace them back to design decisions.

The electronic and electrical systems design process

One of the topics included is J1939, a standard for the interoperability of on-board communication networks. J1939, supports heavy-duty and off-highway vehicles. The standard is relevant to trucks and tractors which extends to most commercial vehicles, and most HE vehicles.

In this webinar, we will discuss all aspects of heavy equipment electrical and electronic (E/E) architectures, including:

  • The challenges of heavy equipment network design
  • Managing a hybrid mixture of traditional and newer network technologies
  • Full end-to-end behavior
  • A look into the challenges and benefits of combining J1939 with ethernet
