The main purpose of this effort is to design an autonomous all terrain vehicle which uses a CAN bus. The paper describes the operation and advantages of the CAN protocol in automobiles. The ATV used for this design is a Honda Four Trax Rancher AT and a brief explanation of the parts in the ATV is provided. The Renesas RX62N microcontroller is used as a CAN controller which creates a single two wire bus through which electronic control units (ECU) in the automobiles communicate. The working of… CONTINUE READING
