CAN in Automation (CiA), the international nonprofit users’ and manufacturers’ group, has scheduled CAN technology days in Atlanta (USA), Philadelphia (USA), and Toronto (Canada). They will take place on November 12, 13, respectively 14 and they are free-of-charge for CiA members. These one-day events provide latest trends and developments on CAN-based networking. CiA also informs about internal specification and international standardization activities. This includes, in particular, the migration from Classical CAN to CAN FD and an outlook to CAN XL, the next generation CAN data link layer.
Additionally, CiA offers the opportunity to book an in-house seminar. These customer-tailored trainings provide technical in-depth information. They are intended for development engineers and system designers. CiA members get credits on such in-house seminars. The ordering company specifies the agenda and content of the seminar.
The CiA organization has 679 members worldwide; 61 are located in USA and six are headquartered in Canada. The nonprofit association maintains the CANopen and CANopen FD application layers. It supports also J1939-based application layers such as Isobus (ISO 11783 series), ISO 11992 series, and IEC 61162-3 (also known as NMEA2000).
