The aerospace industry was relatively quick to recognise the controller area network’s (CAN’s) reliability.Aerospace
The Controller Area Network (CAN) protocol was developed for the automotive industry and has since found widespread application elsewhere.Automotive
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
Electric vehicles (EVs) are a fast-growing part of the automotive market. Bosch expects that 85 to 90 million cars will be produced worldwide in 2015.Electric Vehicles
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
Philips Medical Systems was one of the first medical device manufacturers, if not the first, to decide to use CAN for the internal networking of their X-ray machines.Medical
