DCM is developing CAN-GSM solution in order
to provide the remote scan tool for the automotive industry.
There are plenty of scan tools available in the market and
almost all of them need a wired connection. GSM based Scan
tool will provide the added advantage to the technicians as
they will be able to diagnose the fault remotely.
The solution is based on a modular design
and it can be easily adapted for other wireless technologies
like CDMA, WLAN and Bluetooth. Moreover the CAN module can
be replaced by other protocols like J1850, KWP 2000 etc.
DCM CAN-GSM Demo setup
demonstrates viewing / modifying CAN parameters transmitted
over a GSM Network. The Solution uses a virtual CAN driver
interface for the demo purpose, which can be easily replaced
by physical CAN device. GSM is used as the mode of transmitting
and receiving data packets. Palm based PDA is used for displaying
DCM CAN-GSM solution broadly consists of the following
- Scan Tool – for viewing / modifying CAN Parameters
on the Palm M130 PDA
- CAN-GSM Gateway – For GSM based Communication
- CAN Simulator Interface Application – interface
to the CAN hardware Simulator software
(on windows 2000)
