Data Acquisition From Heavy-Duty Vehicles Using The SAE J1939 CAN Bus

Posted by Technical Literature on

Data Acquisition from HD Vehicles Using J1939 CAN Bus

Modern vehicles have electronic control units (ECUs) to control various subsystems such as the engine, brakes, steering, air conditioning, and infotainment. These ECUs (or simply `controllers') are networked together to share information, and output directly measured and calculated data to each other. This in-vehicle network is a data goldmine for improved maintenance, measuring vehicle performance and its subsystems, fleet management, warranty and legal issues, reliability, durability, and accident reconstruction.

The focus of Data Acquisition from HD Vehicles Using J1939 CAN Bus is to guide the reader on how to acquire and correctly interpret data from the in-vehicle network of heavy-duty (HD) vehicles. The reader will learn how to convert messages to scaled engineering parameters, and how to determine the available parameters on HD vehicles, along with their accuracy and update rate.

Written by two specialists in this field, Richard (Rick) P. Walter and Eric P. Walter, principals at HEM Data, located in the United States, the book provides a unique road map for the data acquisition user. The authors give a clear and concise description of the CAN Bus protocol plus a review of all 19 parts of the SAE International J1939 standard family. Pertinent standards are illuminated with tables, graphs and examples.Practical applications covered are calculating fuel economy, duty cycle analysis, and capturing intermittent faults. 

A comparison is made of various diagnostic approaches including OBD-II, HD-OBD and World Wide Harmonized (WWH) OBD.Data Acquisition from HD Vehicles Using J1939 CAN Bus is a must-have reference for those interested to acquire data effectively from the SAE J1939 equipped vehicles.

SAE J1939 ECU Simulator Board With USB Port

SAE J1939 ECU Simulator Board With USB Port

The jCOM.J1939.USB gateway board is a high-performance, low-latency vehicle network adapter for SAE J1939 applications. It allows any host device with a USB COM port to monitor SAE J1939 data traffic and communicate with the SAE J1939 vehicle network.

The board supports the full SAE J1939 protocol according to J1939/81 Network Management (Address Claiming) and J1939/21 Transport Protocol (TP). It is also supported by an extensive programming interface for Windows and Linux/Ubuntu applications, including full C/C++/C# source code for short time-to-market developments.

With all its features, the jCOM.J1939.USB allows the simulation of an SAE J1939 ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using embedded solutions such as the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, Teensy, and others but also PCs running Windows or Linux (incl. Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.).
