Abstract

A controller area network (CAN) provides the central communication link on virtually every modern agricultural machine. Tractors, combines, and other powered vehicles use CAN Bus technology to connect multiple individual electronic control units (ECUs) and exchange sensor and control data. The advent of CAN technology has improved vehicle diagnostics, simplified electronic control design, and enabled advanced implement management through standards such as ISOBUS.
