Title: SWITCHING CELL, CAN BUS NETWORK AND RECONFIGURATION METHOD
Abstract:
A method and apparatus to reconfigure a CAN bus network after a failure comprising providing the network with a control device and one or more node devices in a closed loop of CAN bus lines, detecting if there is a failure in the network and reconfiguring the network if a failure is detected. Reconfiguring the network when a failure has been detected comprises decoupling each of the plurality of devices in the network from the CAN bus line, configuring the network to terminate signals in a first device closest to the failure on one side of the failure, configuring the network to terminate signals in a second device closest to the failure on the other side of the failure and coupling a first side of each device with a second side of an adjacent device other than the first side of the second device and the second side of the first device.
