dc.description.abstract As the cost of wireless devices approaches zero , it becomes more feasible to replace wires with wireless communication . Vehicle wiring harnesses are traditionally wired to communicate both power and information simultaneously , resulting in separate circuits for each vehicle device . X -By -Wireless seeks to supplant this configuration in favor of a shared power bus and wireless inter -component communication . In doing so , we can recognize a number of benefits such as reduced weight and increased reliability , flexibility , and upgradeability . However , this introduces new problems such as longer transmission delays , interference and encryption issues , fusing difficulties , and public perception regarding safety . The purpose of this thesis is to define the X -By -Wireless concept and to investigate the benefits and drawbacks in implementing X -By -Wireless . Furthermore , we do a theoretical and case study analysis to expand upon the weight reduction benefit so as to quantify the expected improvements . We also address each of the challenges presented by X -By -Wireless and integrate them into a proposed circuit that is capable of performing all the necessary functions of wireless control , wireless sensing , and fusing . We find that the proposed device can be mass -produced as an effective solution that meets the speed and security constraints necessary for most vehicle components . en_US
