This week Eagle Works coder Zach Griswold made significant progress on the car's CAN bus. CAN stands for controller area network, the CAN bus allows each system to communicate with one another and the driver. Zach was able to get two circuit boards to communicate using message buffers and data buffers. Zach was even able to get the messages to send at a rate of 10,000 times per second. Zach plans on using what he designed here to complete the message sending and receiving structure for the CAN bus and be able to write data to SD cards. Keep it up Zach!
