CAN Bus Tutorial - Benefits of Using the CAN Bus

The following is an excerpt from  A Comprehensible Controller Area Network by Wilfried Voss. Like any field-bus system based on serial communication, Controller Area Network will reduce wiring, which was initially considered an advantageous side effect. Distributed control, i.e., the use of a multi-processor system, will consequently result in increased performance. The vastly reduced costs of microcontroller [...]
