FEASIBILITY STUDY OF APPLYING MULTIPLEXING TECHNOLOGY TO INTERCITY COACHES, VOL.1

Multiplexing is the transmission of multiple messages over a single channel, reducing the wiring in a vehicle by using wire more effectively. While multiplexing is being actively pursued by the automotive and trucking industries, it has not been considered on intercity coaches. This report investigates the technical and economic feasibility of applying multiplexing technology to intercity coaches, specifically a Motor Coach Industries 102C3 coach. The report evaluates the technological and economic benefits and defines an implementation plan for its orderly incorporation over the next 5 years. Current practices in the automotive and trucking industries are assessed, along with their refinement for the intercity coach industry. The report includes a technical assessment, system level design, and a cost/benefit analysis.
