CiA technology days in commercial vehicles

CAN in Automation (CiA) has scheduled two CiA technology days online with the topic "CANopen in commercial vehicles”.

The 4-hour events take place two times, at different starting times. On November 05 (start 14:00 to 18:00, Berlin time) and November 06 (start 08:30 to 12:30, Berlin time), 2020. Thus, people from all over the world can participate at a suitable local time.

These CiA technology days provide an overview about the CANopen application field in commercial vehicles. Among others, off-highway vehicles, construction machineries, or refuse collecting vehicles are considered. The presentation language will be English. Participation is free of charge, but registration is obligatory to receive the dial-in data. CiA members have also the option to take part with technical-oriented presentations, to inform about experiences with commercial vehicles solutions.
