Control area network is a network system for connecting different nodes and controlling it by transferring data from one node to another. Here the mode of data transfer will be from each and every nodal address mostly can bus is used for automobiles, industrial application and controls. 

 This will consume very less power compared to another network connection we give a specific address to each and every location where the CAN node is fixed with this specific address each is communicated. The data what we want to display will be predefined one and that is transmitted to the location after transmit we can get an acknowledgement from that place that the complete data s been received.
