SAE J1939 Transport Protocol (TP) Functions

The following is an excerpt from  A Comprehensible Guide To J1939 by Wilfried Voss. Even though extremely useful in passenger cars and small industrial applications, CAN alone was not suitable to meet the requirements of truck and bus communications, mainly since its communication between devices is limited to only 8 bytes per message. However, it is possible [...]
