The aerospace industry was relatively quick to recognise the controller area network’s (CAN’s) reliability.Aerospace
ISO 11783 defines a communication protocol for the operation and control of agricultural implements and is based on the SAE J1939 protocol, which in turn is based on CAN bus.Agriculture
Battery Management Systems (BMS) are used to monitor and control battery banks used in many industries. With a dominance of Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries in most energy storage applications, BMS have become the critical enabler, from both a functionality and safety perspective.Battery Management
As with civilian vehicles of all types, CAN is pervasive throughout military transportation.Defence
The industrial automation / control sector has a long history with CAN. Indeed, some of the first users of CAN were not from the automotive industry at all, but from the textile machine manufacturing sector.Industrial Automation
From small pleasure boats and tugs, to cruise ships, icebreakers and oil rigs, CAN has long been viewed as the communications protocol of choice for many marine electronics systems.Marine
Mining environments offer performance challenges to electrical systems, in addition to the requirement of extreme safety and reliability – an ideal use of CAN bus.Mining
As the most widely used bus architecture in automotive design, the Controller Area Network (CAN) is suited to any control system where a network architecture is needed.Robotics
