Abstract

Within vehicles, the need for a better performing, more secure network is increasing due to the complexity of the sensors and the growing number of people who can compromise the system. The objective was to improve the performance and throughput of data while also working to improve security within the CANbus network. The approach entailed encoding the CAN frames using M-ASK, and characterizing nodes based on their emitted signal. Results included the successful creation of base2CAN and base4CAN nodes, implementing 4-ary ASK within the network, thusly achieving a doubled throughput. Another achievement was the sounding of the CAN test-bed. Although the results are inconclusive, there is reason to believe that characterizing the nodes can be implemented for increasing vehicle security.
