CAN but also Lin, FlexRay, Ethernet and many other communication buses are used to carry all sort of signals within vehicles. It is obvious that in order to reduce cost and foster innovation AGL should provide a generic and efficient mechanism to read/write vehicle signals. This model should not only provide an encoding/decoding of binary messages in such a way that it is easy for application and process them. It should also provide an abstraction model that allow not to reveal binary encodings when those one are not public. Last not not least it should be secured by design. This talk proposes a model to build CAN or other bus agents that leverage AGL framework for transport and security and Ford OpenXC for encoding/decoding binary messages.
