Title: METHOD FOR OPERATING A CONTROL APPARATUS, AND DIAGNOSIS SYSTEM
Abstract:
A method for operating a control apparatus (1) for a vehicle is specified. The control apparatus (1) comprises a global memory (G), a data consistency buffer (D) and an output buffer and is designed to execute multiple computation processes (T) simultaneously and/or cooperatively and/or pre-emptively. The method involves an output sequence being provided that is representative of possible computation process output times for variables used in the computation processes (T). A first selection signal, which is representative of at least one variable to be provided in the output buffer among the variables used in the computation processes (T), and a second selection signal are provided, said second selection signal being representative of at least one desired computation process output time for the respective variable to be provided. The first selection signal and the second selection signal are taken as a basis for selecting from the output sequence a computation process output time (M1) for the respective variable to be provided, and the selected computation process output time (M1) is taken as a basis for copying the respective variable to be provided from the data consistency buffer (D) or the global memory (G) to the output buffer during a prescribed output period. Further, a diagnosis system (10) is specified.
