Automotive Controller Area Network (CAN)

Because of modern technology, today's automobiles are smarter than ever. The car's sophisticated brain communicates with the many automotive systems via a network not unlike the human nervous system. The de facto standard in modern transportation is a platform called the Controller Area Network, or CAN.

The Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial bus communications protocol developed by Bosch in the early 1980s. It defines a standard for efficient and reliable communication between sensor, actuator, controller, and other nodes in real-time applications. CAN is the de facto standard in a large variety of networked embedded control systems. 

CAN is found in a variety of passenger cars, trucks, boats, spacecraft, and other types of vehicles. In the automotive industry, embedded control has grown from stand-alone systems to highly integrated and networked control systems. By networking electro-mechanical subsystems, it becomes possible to modularize functionalities and hardware, which facilitates reuse and adds capabilities.

Combining networks and mechatronic modules makes it possible to reduce both the cabling and the number of connectors, which facilitates production and increases reliability. Introducing networks in vehicles also makes it possible to more efficiently carry out diagnostics and to coordinate the operation of the separate subsystems.

*Much of this information was derived from a paper entitled Vehicle Applications of Controller Area Network by Karl Henrik Johansson, Martin Törngren, and Lars Nielsen.

ATech Corporation has developed a robust series of trainers and multi-media courseware to support the CAN platform. 


The series includes:

  • Starting System

  • Charging System

  • Lighting System

  • Wiper/Washer System

  • Power Window System

  • Power Door Lock System

  • Power Seat System

  • And GMLAN Network System

For more details on each of these trainers and associated courseware, download the CAN Platform catalog (PDF).
