Implement SAE J1939 in heavy equipment vehicle design

Reduce errors and improve design cycle times, achieving data consistency within the design flow. assures a correct-by-construction design methodology

As electrical systems grow in size and sophistication, designing heavy duty vehicles is becoming even more of a challenge. SAE has defined a standard for the interoperability of on-board communication networks, J1939, supporting heavy equipment. The adoption of this standard enables tractors, trailers and accessories to connect together without customization.

Generatively design heavy equipment electrical and electronic (E/E) systems

This paper will discuss how the Siemens Capital software suite of tools can be used to generatively design the electrical and electronic (E/E) systems of heavy equipment from the E/E architecture definition, revolutionizing the vehicle E/E design process. This process can utilize the standard library of signals and messages from the SAE J1939 standard, the defined functions, and E/E architecture to generate the E/E design.

Read the white paper to learn more about how the use of Siemens Capital Systems tools for SAE J1939 network design removes the manual file exchange and copy/paste tasks from system design for off-highway vehicles.
