For engineers involved in developing autonomous car navigation, safety and communication systems using CANbus and the SAE 1939 standard, Aceinna has released this video explaining some of the terminology and how to conduct experiments.
Mike Horton, CTO of Aceinna, explains why it is necessary to integrate inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensor technology with CAN communications and how to do so in a variety of vehicle types and classes. He also explains what an IMU is, what CANbus is, and dives into a discussion of how to create a custom CANbus application using an open source IMU sensor.
Furthermore, the video compares various debugging tools including Cooperhill Technologies, Komodo and Vector equipment. It also discusses the differences between CAN 2.0A and CAN 2.0B, as well the J1939 standard including the Address Claim feature.
Finally, Horton demonstrates how to build and code custom CANbus 2.0A and CANbus 2.0B IMU autonomous vehicle guidance applications.
