With the proliferation of electronic systems within automobiles, using CAN(Control Area Network) for all automotive electronics becomes prohibitively expensive and complex. Recently another communication standard called LIN (local inter connect network) has emerged as a viable replacement to CAN. LIN is a simple and low cost solution to reduce the complexity and the cost of the overall automotive network. A combination of CAN and LIN when required and dedicated can be used to reduce the cost of automation in industries in a significant way. Also such a hierarchical network can be used effectively in conjunction with a SCADA system based on Virtual Instrumentation for monitoring and control by a virtual control panel(Touch screen LCD) located in the instrument cluster of the vehicle according to OBD-II(On Board Diagnostics) regulations
