Vehicle Tracking Device With CAN Bus Gateway Connects OBD-II Or SAE J1939 To Remote TCP Servers

Posted by Industry News on

FALCOM FOX3-2G Series - Advanced Vehicle Tracking Device

Falcom (Germany) has introduced their Iobox-CAN, which connects to the Fox3-2G/3G/4G gateway via USB. The Fox3-2G/3G/4G gateway, in turn, links to a CAN Bus vehicle network (e.g., per OBDII interface) and reads the CAN Bus data and transmits it to a remote TCP server.

The Iobox-CAN provides a second independent CAN Bus interface. It also comes with four analog ports, which can be configured to function as digital ports. There are four additional I/O ports with open collector digital outputs. They are set individually as relay, indicator, or switch port.

The CAN Bus interface operates at up to 1 Mbit/s, and the add-on device supports the FMS (fleet management system) specification and OBDII communication. This line of products is suitable for on/ off-road vehicles including construction and agriculture machinery.

Embedded Ethernet and Internet Complete

Bringing together two areas of computer technology—networking and embedded systems—this developer's guide offers guidance and examples for each of these, with a focus on the unique requirements and limits of embedded systems.

Because developing an embedded system for networking requires knowledge from many areas, including circuit design, programming, network architecture, and Ethernet and Internet protocols, developers gain relevant technical information on each that can be put to use right away.

Covered are the advantages and limitations of using Ethernet to connect embedded systems in a local network, hardware and program code needed to connect an embedded system to an Ethernet network and the Internet, and how to build a network.

Also discussed are how embedded systems can use TCP/IP and related protocols and how personal-computer applications can use the protocols to communicate with embedded systems. Developers will learn how their Web server's pages can include dynamic, real-time content and respond to user input.
