From the editors' desk

[2015-04-21] The preliminary program of the 2nd international Mobile Machine Control (MMC) conference has been released. It covers a broad range of topics: From safety via remote diagnostics to CAN FD, the improved CAN protocol. The two-day event will take place in Nuremberg (Germany) on June 9 and 10. The presentation language will be English.

We will report about this conference in detail in the September issue of the CAN Newsletter (PDF). Brief news will be published before in this online newsletter as well as in social media such as Twitter and LinkedIn, which we update regularly.
