The demand for increases in functionality and comfort in automobiles stimulates an
ever-increasing need for more and better vehicle electronic systems.

When the first Audi A8 was introduced in 1994, 15 control modules were sufficient to
support all vehicle functions. The number of control modules used in the new 2003
Audi A8, has increased five-fold.

This increase in the use of electronics spurred a search for new ways to transmit
data between the individual control modules in the vehicle.

The Audi introduction of the CAN data bus in the mid-nineties was a first and important step. However, the CAN data bus system strains against the limits of data
transmission rates, especially for Infotainment applications.

To fill the need for rapid transmission of increasing amounts of information, data-
transmission systems have been developed to suit the specific needs of the vehicle systems that they serve. Service and on-board diagnostics also profit from these developments.

Based on the limitations of current networks, the increasing number of control modules needed and their divided functions, and the increasing amount of data exchange required, further developments in data transmission technology must be exploited for use in

The following data exchange innovations have been added to the familiar CAN data
bus systems already in place for use in

Audi vehicles:

  • Single-wire data bus – Local Interconnect Network (LIN) data bus.
  • Fiber-optic data bus – Media-Oriented Systems Transport (MOST) data bus.
  • Wireless data bus – Bluetooth wireless data transmission technology
