In 1991 the CAN bus (Controller Area Network) was the first bus system to be introduced to a motor vehicle in mass production. It has since established itself as the standard system in the automotive sector, but the CAN bus is also commonly used as a field bus in automation engineering in general. In imitation of other network types, such as the local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN) or personal area network (PAN), this bus system was given the name, CAN.
