Holger Zeltwanger, the initiator of the international users’ and manufacturers’ group, reports in his article about some historical challenges and about the future tasks of the association. The development of CANopen FD is still in progress. At the iCC and during the Embedded World one week later, CiA members will show a CAN FD demonstrator.

“From the beginning, CiA was committed to cooperate as close as possible with standardization bodies,” he stated in his article. “Nowadays, CiA staff participates in or observes nearly any international working group, which deals with CAN technology.” CiA also cooperates with other communication technology consortia in the field of device profiles.
