CAN in Automation released version 3.0 of the CAN truck gateway specification. The profile specification is based on the ISO 11992 series. Courtesy: CiAThe CAN in Automation (CiA) international users’ and manufacturers’ group has released version 3.0 of the CAN truck gateway specification. Gateways compliant to this specification link CAN in-vehicle networks to CANopen-based body applications. Truck bodies are, for example, cranes, aerial working platforms, concrete mixers, or road-cleaning equipment. Objective of the standardized gateway interface is that a body controller can be installed on different truck brands without much integration effort. 

The CANopen profile specification is widely based on the ISO 11992 series. In addition, it specifies a mapping of generic J1939 messages to the CANopen dictionary. Part 8 of CiA 413 describes the framework to use the in-vehicle display by the body controller. This avoids the installation of a separate body-specific display. CiA has released also the CiA 850 recommended practice, which specifies the gateway implementation for truck-mounted cranes. The leading European crane manufacturers have developed it.
