The rapid development in electronics industries is making the automobile industries smarter day by day. More number of electronics subsystems are being integrated in the modern automobile which increases the wiring among the overall system, cost and reduces the system reliability. To overcome this problem of complex wiring, cost, system reliability and data interchange among different electronics subsystem, an automobile control system is designed using controller area network protocol. This paper describes the control system design using three nodes in the simulation tool. The simulation setup of CAN bus control system contains the software flowchart, the database and the experimental graphs which is obtained during data transfer between nodes. The system comprises of the engine ignition, speed, headlight and the hazard-light. The software part of the automobile control system is designed and sharing of data is fully realized among the node.
