4.2. Car-Gateway
The Car-Gateway is the top element of the architecture and it is a Linux based Car-PC.
Its responsibility is to run the main application, storing the information sent by the Sensor
Manager via Ethernet and evaluating the information of the sensors in the system, and finally
taking the right decision in order to help increasing car safety and passengers comfort.
4.3. Sensor Manager, NCAP
The Sensor Manager is a Linux based mini-PC (alix 3c3). It uses the created libraries and
APIs to manage the sensors and the communication with the sensor nodes in a transparent
way, as it is defined in the IEEE 1451.0 and IEEE 1451.5 standards.
The following table summarizes the functions that have been implemented in the first
version of this solution:
Table 1. Implemented functions

TimDiscovery_reportChannels Reports available channels in a STIM
TransducerAccess_open Opens the access of the specified channel
TransducerAccess_close Closes the access of the specified channel
TransducerAccess_startStream Starts the data stream from a specified channel
TransducerAccess_cancel Stops the data stream of a specified channel
Comm_init Initializes the communication parameters and
establishes the Bluetooth connection
Comm_shutdown Shuts down a previously stablished Bluetooth
NetComm_open Opens the communication interface of the
IEEE 1451 layer
