GEMAC Academy: CAN bus basics

CAN (Controller Area Network) is a standardized bus system that enables the communication between electronic control units.

CAN bus systems function like the nervous system in the human body. Just as the central nervous system connects the parts of the body, in a mobile machine the CAN bus connects the control units. Through this wiring, all components are thus linked via a common data network.
