Austin, TX (December 15, 2014) — General Dynamics, the world’s fifth-largest defense contractor, has chosen CANbus Academy to provide them with a 3-day training on CAN protocol, ECU Design and CAN systems integration.

Training took place at the General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems facility in Herndon, VA from December 8 through December 10, where a group of 10 engineers and scientists, experts in developing advanced information systems for defense applications, expanded their knowledge in CAN-technology.

“CAN” stands for Controller Area Network and is a networking protocol widely used in automotive, marine, machinery, rail, industrial and medical applications.

“ECU” stands for Electronic Control Unit and is a generic term for any embedded system that controls one or more of the electrical systems or subsystems in a motor vehicle.

The Course Project, the highpoint of the training, provided the students with an exciting challenge and a way to demonstrate the concepts they had learned. Their assignment was to build a Battle Tank. The class successfully delivered 8 ECUs interconnected with CAN network to perform the tank’s propulsion and weapons systems.
