Abstract: Various parameters in the industries can be monitored and controlled using CAN bus network integrated with Bluetooth Communication. Monitoring and controlling the industrial parameters involve a large amount of man power and time consumption. To overcome the need of huge man power and time consumption this technology was developed which makes use of single person for monitoring and controlling the entire network. This method has been implemented in order to reduce the usage of wires used for communication purpose and also to reduce the errors relating to the data transfer. In this project sensors are used to sense the variable industrial parameters and the CAN protocols are used for error free data transmission and data reception purpose along with Bluetooth, pic microcontrollers are used for programming the CAN controller. The data transmission rate will be higher than other wireless systems. This application is user friendly and it can be achieved at a very low cost.
