Abstract

The development of on-board electronics of vehicles is related to the evolution of microcontrollers and microprocessor, both in hardware and software issues. Traction equipment has been based on such electronic controllers for decades, but most of the systems are paralleled and have fewer interconnections. The specialists of ICPE SAERP have accomplished the interconnection task on our latest products designed to be operated on trolley buses, trams, light metros or EMU. This working paper presents the interconnection of traction equipment mounted on the Irisbus body and the same communication protocol applied for trams, thus allowing the vehicle to have full on-line diagnosis within the intelligent and advanced transport systems.
