SAN DIEGO - July 26, 2018 - PRLog -- Network Sorcery is offering an automotive decoder package called UCAN. UCAN is intended to be used for a variety of informative and quality-of-life upgrades for the owner and operator of any vehicle. The UCAN system can communicate with most vehicles, from motorcycles through class-8 trucks.

The data stream provided by UCAN is many times faster than what market-leading scan tools can deliver. By comparison, OBD2-only tools deliver roughly eighty to one hundred parameters per second, where this hybrid native/active system can reach upwards of six thousand parameters per second and beyond. This system provides better performance, improves safety, and gives both more volume and detail within the data. UCAN is capable of investigating PIDs and DTCs, while also outputting data in an easy-to-use form.

In the latest update, UCAN now graphically displays vehicle data with gauges through Race Render 3 or Dashware applications.

OBD2-only scanners cannot easily decode some essential parameters, including those that show driver intent. This makes the UCAN system cutting edge in the development of a unified vehicle platform and integration of onboard data streams. UCAN has been in a prototype state, and currently contains a limited set of test-drive data to decode. Further decoding of native vehicle languages will be an ongoing task for expanding the number of supported vehicles and their parameters.

Other applications for this technology range from performance enhancement, fuel efficiency, safety, alerts and reminders, data logging, recreation, car customization, and much more. Network Sorcery will be adding compatibility for third-party applications, and potentially integrating third-party hardware. In the future, Network Sorcery hopes to become a Vehicle to Vehicle communications platform.

The recommended hardware platform is a Raspberry Pi 3 with a PiCAN2 board attached. In addition, UCAN can run with any CAN-adapter that provides a Socketcan interface under Linux.
