Implementation of Controller Area Network Data Compression Algorithm for Automobile Applications
Controller Area Network (CAN) is a vehicle bus standard and an attractive alternative in the automobile industries
to establish a communication between various devices inside an automobile and many high-level industrial control
applications. Because of its ease to use, it is widely used in automobile industries. There is Faster expanding the area of
automotive electronics. Infotainment devices, safety requirement, driver assistance these are standard in new vehicles. To
provide driver assistance applications large number of sensors are required. These sensors require high bandwidth and
demands for faster and more flexible network communication into vehicle. One option to reduce the data transmission time
is to reduce the message frame in standard CAN data field. The main aim of the project is implementation of CAN protocol
using LPC1768 ARM Cortex-M3 processor for data acquisition in vehicle monitoring.
