Matrix: CAN Bus Systems and Operation Solution

Product Code: LK7629A


This kit allows a fully functioning CAN bus system, mimicking vehicle operation, to be set up using 4 MIAC Electronics Control Units to represent the Instrument panel, Front ECU, Powertrain control, and Rear ECU. A fifth MIAC is used for system diagnosis, releasing faults and viewing CAN bus messages. Students are tasked with setting up a fully working CAN bus system, inserting faults and using hardware and software tools to understand fault diagnosis procedures and practice. The solution includes component carriers, baseboard, power supplies and storage trays. Curriculum, including experiments and teachers notes, is available from our resources page.
