[Vlog] Learn All About CAN BUS Protocol Stack: An Invisible Hero, Omnipresent in Your Automobile!

Electronic Control Units (ECU), the mini computers inside your car, need to talk (communicate) among themselves in order to keep the system up and running efficiently.

For instance, the Engine Control Unit exchanges information such as RPM, Engine Temperature etc. to other control units like Transmission Control Unit or Battery Management System.

So how do OEMs ensure that these Automotive ECUs’ from different Suppliers are compatible with each other?

Well, it’s time for our invisible superhero to make its presence felt!

Our very own CAN Bus Protocol, who acts as the back-bone of in-vehicle networking, ensures that the required compatibility is achieved.

CAN Bus protocol utilizes the underlying CAN Bus, as the physical medium, to exchange vehicle data at a faster rate.

In the first part of this video series, we will introduce you to the CAN Bus protocol and how it is an omnipresent, yet an invisible hero inside your vehicle.

The CAN Bus Protocol Stack Introductory Video will also Unravel:

  • Why was the need for a CAN Bus Software felt?
  • A Brief History of CAN Bus Protocol
  • How does CAN Bus Protocol Facilitate in-vehicle networking
  • Why is CAN Bus Software Solution so important for Automotive Industry

Understanding CAN Bus Protocol opens the door to in-vehicle networking, ECU reprogramming and a lot of functionalities and protocols related to automotive.

In that context, this video can be quite helpful for various stakeholders such as new automotive engineers, decision makers, business managers and more.
