ETTN to Host Vehicle Communication Standards Webinar


Integrated vehicle electronics now means all systems are sharing data across several different networks. Making changes to a vehicle (ride height, performance, braking, infotainment, etc.) could have unintended consequences if you do not know or understand the relationship between electronic control units (ECUs).

Automotive aftermarket engineers, product developers or any ETTN member who uses a scan tool for development or product validation, are invited to the SEMA Emerging Trends & Technology Network (ETTN) webinar on Tuesday, June 4, at 1:00 p.m. PDT/4:00 p.m. EDT to learn about new vehicle communication standards.

Attendees will hear from Bob Augustine, Opus IVS's vice president of business development, as he presents the fundamentals of the currently used controller area network (CAN) and how they are being upgraded/migrated to faster standards as the need for more data computing takes place.

While the currently used CAN bus communication protocols are very robust and stable, the advent of data fusion across network ECUs requires faster data transmission and lower latency. The two newer protocols, FD CAN and DoIP, are already on vehicles on the road and will require updated hardware to communicate with the laptop.
