The FlexRay Protocol was developed by the FlexRay consortium which was started when BMW and DaimlerChrysler worked together to create a new network scheme that would suit their current and future needs. They were soon joined by other companies such as Bosch and Phillips . FlexRay is set to become widely used in the automotive industry where it will replace or support existing networking schemes such as CAN. It has already been implemented by BMW in the 2006 X5 . This paper will introduce the key features of the FlexRay protocol and where relevant it will be compared it to CAN and the existing Fieldbus technologies such as PROFIBUS and Foundation Fieldbus.
