Rynius has been working on his CAN house project. The CAN bus is a multi-master serial protocol that was initially designed for integrating sensors and microcontrollers in vehicles.
I’m trying to automate my house using a CAN-bus. The first phase is two nodes, one at the front to collect data, and one in the kitchen to display data , alert, log and such. The basic circuit is a PIC18F4580 and MCP2551 CAN Driver and have two other nodes built on breadboards connected to the bus for a test setup. Next I have to figure out a good scheme for addresses and all the other programming, so I’ll keep you posted.
