Automotive Smart Grid

A control platform that combines all the car components into a single real-time control system. ASG consists of ECU modules, power-line communication wiring and a distributed synchronous computing network to make up the full EE Architecture of a vehicle

10x reduction in wiring of a passenger car

Synchronous system provides real-time decision making

Significantly greater performance and computing power than central computers in modern cars


A Single Quantum Computation in all ASG Modules - 1mc

Unified Intelligence in a distributed network. There is a single computer consisting of all modules on board

Synchronous and Parallel Data Processing

Allowing for greater performance and higher computing power since multiple computations can be handled in parallel simultaneously

A Key Advantage for Autonomous Vehicles

The ASG Platform allows you to create interconnected vector control systems for unmanned vehicles. Existing control systems do not have this property due to asynchronous communication between systems. ASG communication protocol results in decisions being made by several orders of magnitude faster than the current standard, making vector control possible and autonomous driving safe

Advantages for Electric Vehicles

Increasing Efficiency of the Entire Power System of the Car by Managing Energy Flows

Due to the fact that the ASG Platform allows you to combine information about the energy flows in the car with the current vector of movement, it is possible to build recovery algorithms with efficiency up to 85% or higher

The ASG platform makes it possible to improve vehicle control by controlling wheel drives based on an expanded information field

Material Comparison

Modern Car Setup:

ASG Setup: 

vehicle electronics
  • Over 2km of power and information wires 

  • 70-80 Control units and individual systems with their own algorithms and software

  • Total weight of electronics exceeds 30kg and set to rise by another 10kg by 2025

  • Less than 200m of power and information wires 

  • 12-14 identical ASG modules that make up all the control modules in the car

  • Significant reduction in weight and complexity

Resulting in:

  • Low Reliability - Higher risk of damage with a larger amount of wiring 

  • Labour Intensive - longer to install 

  • High Cost - Copper Harnesses significantly affect the cost of the car

Resulting in: 

  • Higher Reliability - Due to the set up and reduced material

  • Time and Material Saving - cutting costs and time in production

  • Affordability - a reduction in overall cost of the electronics system which currently makes up 40% of vehicle cost

Characteristics of the ASG Communication Protocol

Car ECU nodes

The Transfer Rate of the ASG Communication Protocol is 1.5Mbps.

In the ASG Communication Protocol, the share of useful information in the frame is constant and equal to 98%. In the CAN Protocol, it is floating and equal to 30-35% on average. 

Thus, the transfer rate in ASG of 1.5 Mbps corresponds to a speed of 4.5 Mbps in the CAN Protocol, which is exceeds the speed required for stable driving when using the synchronous communication protocol. 

We are working to increase this by 2-3 times in the near future.

1kHz - the Frame Rate (sync grid) - the frequency at which all ASG modules see the information state of the entire system. This frequency corresponds to processes that cover the entire car, such as the movement process. 

100kHz - the frequency of tracking and monitoring processes inside each electronic module of the ASG platform. For example, tracking of the load current and short-circuit detection. In this case, the response time to the short circuit will be equal to 10 microseconds. 

Tight synchronisation between these frequencies (1kHz and 100kHz) ensures vector control at all levels.
