Overview: The FlexRay Consortium promoted the adoption of the FlexRay communication system for high-speed communication networks for automotive applications. FlexRay was a communication system that supported in-car control applications that had not yet been released to the public. The FlexRay system employed the FlexRay communications protocol, which combined a scalable static and dynamic message transmission, incorporating the advantages of familiar synchronous and asynchronous protocols. The protocol also supported: fault-tolerant clock synchronization via a global time base; collision-free bus access; message latency; and message oriented addressing via identifiers. The Consortium planned to make the technology available for new application and application domains such as active and passive safety systems, systems for consumer comfort and fuel consumption. *The FlexRay consortium disbanded in 2009.
