Remote Control via Can/Ethernet Gateway Using GPRS

James Agajo, Idigo V. E. and Isaac Avazi

Abstract—The work discussed, analyzed and evolved a solution to the problem relating to control and monitoring via a Controller Area Network (CAN) and ETHERNET interface. In this project the two technologies CONTROLLER AREA NETWORK (CAN) and ETHERNET were interfaced by configuring the HyperTerminal to transmit between the ports of the networks. Analysis on preference for CAN in message transmission over other existing options on the basis of immunity from noise and electromagnetic wave interference was also carried out using Fourier Series. Also covered was a Protocol that establishes a relationship between BUS LENGTH, DATA RATE and number of NODES in CAN BUS network. A model was generated for GPRS, which establishes a relationship between data rate and time. A Fourier series equation was also evolved for the Data fed into the nodes via the CAN BUS. Simulation using MATLAB Software of the Fourier series equation was generated, which gives a graphical representation of the signal transmitted, and the effect of noise. A software called Packet Tracer was used for the simulation of Packet movement. Proteus Laboratory a highly versatile Software was used in bringing up an animated Model for realising the simulation of the entire systems.
