1. An apparatus, comprising:

  • an automotive electronic control unit including a non-transitory memory storage comprising instructions, and at least one hardware processor in hardwired communication with the memory storage, wherein the at least one hardware processor executes the instructions to;

    identify information associated with a message received utilizing a Flexray network protocol associated with a Flexray network;

    issue a storage resource request in connection with a storage resource of the automotive electronic control unit and determine whether the storage resource is available for storing the information;

    determine whether a threshold has been reached in association with the storage resource request;

    in the event the storage resource is not available and the threshold associated with the storage resource request has not been reached, issue another storage resource request in connection with the storage resource;

    in the event the storage resource is not available and the threshold associated with the storage resource request has been reached, send a notification;

    in the event the storage resource is available, store the information utilizing the storage resource; and

    share the information in less than one millisecond utilizing a Controller Area Network protocol associated with a Controller Area Network, the automotive electronic control unit remaining in hardwired communication with the Flexray network and the Controller Area Network, and including;

    a first interface for interfacing with the Flexray network, the first interface including a first interface-related data link layer component that uses Flexray network-related data link layer header bits and a first interface-related network layer component that uses Flexray network-related network layer header bits; and

    a second interface for interfacing with the Controller Area Network, the second interface including a second interface-related data link layer component that uses Controller Area Network-related data link layer header bits and a second interface-related network layer component that uses Controller Area Network-related network layer header bits.
