Previous iCCs

During the last few years a shift of focus has taken place from theoretical to practical and application-oriented. This is true for the speakers as well as for the visitors. Since 2012 another important topic has been added with CAN FD. However, speeches cover practical subjects, such as tools that tremendously simplify the integration of CAN into an application. Papers covering system design, testing, safety and security, or CANopen and CANopen FD as well are discussed vividly among the participants.
