Abstract: CAN stands for Controller Area Network. It is communication protocol which is mainly used in digital network of automotive cars, Industrial, Medical and Scientific systems for routing sensor data between equipment. The main advantages are its accuracy, low noise, high reliability, low cost, simple wiring, ease of use and less maintenance requirements.
To meet the stringent requirements for accuracy, reliability, low noise interference and simple wiring with long service life, there is an increasing demand for efficient testing and validation test methods for CAN networks, this paper test set up mainly cover the CAN physical transmission layer by connecting CAN nodes directly. To test the prototype UWASA node for conformance to the CANopen CiA DS301 (CAN in Automation Draft Specification 301) and to develop the testing software for the performance test according to an internal CANopen Device Specification which describe the automatic test software for testing and validating that against the CiA DS401 standard.
Keywords: CAN, CANopen protocol, Node Test, validation etc
