Zachos, M., Buczko, G., Stone, M., and Dieball, K., "Development Tools and SAE J1939 Networks on Tractors," SAE Technical Paper 950043, 1995, doi:10.4271/950043.
The development of SAE J1939 was prompted by the Heavy Truck industry because of a need for a in-vehicle real time network operating capability (referred to as a “SAE Class C Network”). SAE J1939 has now been adopted for use in tractors and other off road equipment. This paper will outline SAE J1939 network development tools that are available to support hardware and software engineers. An example SAE J1939 network application done by Oklahoma State University will show how some of these tools could be used on tractors.
