OBD and CAN Data Acquisition for Light Duty Vehicles the Topics of New Book from SAE International

SAE International announces a new book that guides readers on how to acquire and correctly interpret data from the in-network of light-duty (LD) vehicles.

Data Acquisition from Light Duty Vehicles Using OBD and CAN is authored by Eric Walter and Richard Walter and is seen as a must-have reference for product engineers, service technicians fleet managers and all interested in acquiring data effectively from the SAE J1939-equipped vehicles.

Modern vehicles have multiple electronic control units (ECU) to control various subsystems such as the engine, brakes, steering, air conditioning, and infotainment. These ECUs are networked together to share information directly with each other. This in-vehicle network provides a data opportunity for improved maintenance, fleet management, warranty and legal issues, reliability, and accident reconstruction.

Readers of this book will learn how to determine what data is available on the vehicle’s network, acquire messages and convert them to scaled engineering parameters, apply more than 25 applicable standards, and understand 15 important test modes. Topics featured in this book include:
  • Calculated fuel economy
  • Duty cycle analysis
  • Capturing intermittent faults
Richard Walter and Eric Walter provide a unique roadmap for the data acquisition user. In addition, they give a clear and concise description of the CAN protocol plus a review of all 19 parts of the SAE International J1939 standard family.
