This module allows the user to interface the Waspmote ecosystem with CAN Bus systems. Waspmote allows to perform three main applications:
1- Connect any sensor to an existing CAN Bus device/network
Waspmote can be configured to work as a node in the network, inserting sensor data into the CAN Bus already present. Waspmote can obtain information from more than 70 sensors which are currently integrated in the platform by using specific sensor boards (e.g: CO, CO2, temperature, humidity, acceleration, pH, IR, luminosity, etc). This way, the sensor information can be read from any CAN Bus device connected to the bus.

2- Add wireless connectivity to CAN Bus devices
Waspmote can be configured to read the information coming from the CAN Bus and send it wirelessly using any of the wireless modules available in the platform to a base station or even directly to a Cloud server. The available wireless technologies are: 802.15.4, ZigBee, DigiMesh, 868 MHz, 900 MHz, LoRa, WiFi, GPRS, GPRS+GPS, 3G, 4G, Sigfox, LoRaWAN, Bluetooth Pro, Bluetooth Low Energy and RFID/NFC.

3- Connect to the Cloud CAN Bus devices
Waspmote can be configured to read the information coming from the CAN Bus and send it wirelessly directly to the Cloud using WiFi, GPRS, GPRS+GPS, 3G and 4G radio interfaces.
