16th international CAN Conference

The 16th iCC took place at the historical Town Hall in Nuremberg (Germany) in March 2017 and still had a strong focus on CAN FD. Beside device and system design topics, also papers about time synchronization, security, and functional safety were presented and discussed during the breaks in the tabletop exhibition. The CiA member companies esd, ETAS, and HMS sponsored this event.

The 24 papers presented at the iCC covered a broad range of topics, the participants exchanged experiences and knowledge beyond the traditional application domain borders. An important place: The tabletop exhibition enabling personal networking and seeing products, which will be released soon
