Tag: CAN bus

A controller area network (CAN bus) is a vehicle bus standard designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other in applications without a host computer. It is a message-based protocol, designed originally for automotive applications, but is also used in many other contexts. CAN bus is one of five protocols used in the on-board diagnostics (OBD)-II vehicle diagnostics standard. The OBD-II standard has been mandatory for all cars and light trucks sold in the United States since 1996, and the EOBD standard has been mandatory for all petrol vehicles sold in the European Union since 2001 and all diesel vehicles since 2004.

Sensors are simple, why are they so complicated to connect?
Sensors all have a basic function of measuring something, and they have to output that data in some computer readable format. This is the point where there are so many options and limitations but I will call them "interfaces". The most popular interfaces are digital, analog voltage, analog current, 1-Wire, RS232, RS485, CAN bus, and Bluetooth/ANT. Some of these interfaces can support multiple sensors per connector by daisy chaining or unique...
