  • Patent number: 9118568
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a automotive partial networking apparatus and method, which operate or terminate only a specific electronic control unit corresponding to a service currently being provided in a vehicle network composed of a plurality of electronic control units. In the automotive partial networking method, a automotive partial networking apparatus receives a partial networking-only Controller Area Network (CAN) frame from outside of the apparatus. A partial network table is searched based on the CAN frame, and then a CAN identification (ID) is searched for. A partial networking-only CAN frame is generated using the CAN ID. Partial networking is performed by transferring the generated partial networking-only CAN frame to at least one electronic control unit corresponding to a vehicle service.

  • Patent number: 8789009
    Abstract: Provided are an EMF model synchronization method and system. The system calculates a weight based on a hierarchy for an object identifier in a changed model, when the change of the model occurs in an EMF model which has an XML element path as an attribute. The system accumulates the calculated weight to a sum of weights. When the sum of weights becomes greater than the threshold value, the system simultaneously updates all models which are changed until the sum of weights becomes greater than the threshold value, thereby synchronizing change contents. As a hierarchy of an identifier changed on an XML path becomes higher, the weight is determined to have a larger value.
