What is UAVCAN? Uncomplicated Application-level Vehicular Computing And Networking
UAVCAN is an open technology for real-time intravehicular distributed computing and communication based on modern networking standards (Ethernet, CAN FD, etc.). It was created to address the challenge of on-board deterministic computing and data distribution in next-generation intelligent vehicles: manned and unmanned aircraft, spacecraft, robots, and cars.
The name stands for Uncomplicated Application-level Vehicular Computing And Networking.
UAVCAN is a standard open to everyone, and it will always remain this way. No licensing or approval of any kind is necessary for its implementation, distribution, or use.
