ISOBUS Stack Implementation Success Stories:
- Customer: – Stack Configuration and Integration Testing for a European Tier-1 Supplier.
- Business Challenge – The need to migrate products to ISO 11783 standards became inevitable for our customer (Tier-1 supplier of Agricultural automation products) to ensure compatibility with the agricultural implements.
- Embitel Solution – After discussions and adequate requirement gathering our Automotive experts designed the following solutions:
- Off-the-self pre-packaged and pre-tested ISOBUS stack was integrated with minimum modifications.
- A CAN driver was designed to ensure hardware abstraction for data communication, further making the ISOBUS software stack platform independent.
- The ISOBUS software stack also included the feature of compatibility with both RTOS and non-RTOS.

ISOBUS Software Stack Architecture:
We have developed an in-house verified and validated stack with Implement message application layer, diagnostic layer and the task controller layer which can be modified according to the requirement of services.
The ISOBUS software stack is implemented with a Hardware Abstraction layer (CAN HAL) which ensures that the stack is hardware independent (Not dependent on CAN) and reusable or easily portable.
