University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

Abstract: Fieldbuses are industrial networks which define the communication protocols and hardware interface. Fieldbuses have been seen in a broader range of complex systems. In this paper, we briefly interpret the current situation of fieldbuses to highlight two major problems: the comparison and selection of fieldbuses. For the first objective, the essential application target are identified in the areas of process, automotive, industrial and building automations, we compare multiple fieldbuses technical attributes. The second objective aimed on presenting a quality model to facilitate the adoption of fieldbuses. Based on these major problems, the company we cooperate with had assisted us to narrow down the research scope and the amount of fieldbuses. A literature review was employed. Furthermore, we examine and discuss two fieldbus implementation scenarios, and the options of fieldbuses available.
