13th international CAN Conference

The 13th iCC was a very special one, as was the event location Hambach castle, which stands for the cradle of German democracy. The reason for choosing Hambach castle for the 13th iCC only had two reasons. Npr only was it combined with CiA’s 25th anniversary celebration, but also CAN with flexible data rate (FD) has been introduced and was, of course, one of the main topics. However, there were also papers on developments on the higher-layer protocols and profiles, e.g. for airborne use. The companies esd, Ixxat Automation, Janz Tec, Telemotive, and Vector Informatik sponsored the conference.
