About this book

Introduction

This is the first book to offer a hands-on guide to designing, analyzing and debugging a communication infrastructure based on the Controller Area Network (CAN) bus.  Although the CAN bus standard is well established and currently used in most automotive systems, as well as avionics, medical systems and other devices, its features are not fully understood by most developers, who tend to misuse the network. This results in lost opportunities for better efficiency and performance.  

This book offers a comprehensive range of architectural solutions and domains of analysis. It also provides formal models and analytical results, with thorough discussion of their applicability, so that it serves as an invaluable reference for researchers and students, as well as practicing engineers.   

  • Offers the first comprehensive guide to bridging the gap between theory and implementation of the widely accepted Controller Area Network (CAN) bus;
  • Provides examples and best practices for design of communication systems, as well as time and reliability analysis of communication on the CAN bus
  • Improves  the reader’s ability to design, analyze and debug a communication infrastructure based on the CAN bus;
  • Focuses on the practical implementation of the communication stack for CAN and the implications of design choices at all levels, from the selection of the controller, to software development and architectural design.
