Sebastian Langer

  • Based in the Munich, Germany area
  • Began with an apprenticeship as a car electronics technician approximately 23 year ago
  • Worked as an car electronic technician for about 8 years and then switched to BMW Motorsport to work in the engine development and testing department as a measurement and electronics expert
  • Started to develop and build prototype hardware for ECU sensor manipulation and test stand communication
  • Began to study computer science to achieve an engineers degree and get more involved into other projects and departments during my time at BMW
  • Moved over to MicroNova in 2021 to work as a software engineer consultant in automotive
  • Began developing the SLSS CANAnalyser for measurement of CAN based devices and ECU’s on the testbed, in case of missing licenses for Vector hardware 
  • Went on to implement more functionality into the program and create a free to use version based on available Arduino hardware and always have a look on easy usability and intuitive handling 
  • I met Ron Zlotnik in 2022 and began to develop pro-features which can be only used with our proprietary hardware (because the hardware and setup is more specific than all these Arduino micro controllers)

Ron Zlotnik

  • Based in the Detroit, Michigan, USA area
  • Worked in the auto industry for ~23 years
  • Always been close to hardware design, keen in audio and radio technologies
  • In 2007, a need arose for the CAN bus in my job when we needed to test the first generation of Ford radios with CAN bus interface and there were no CAN tools available to wake up and test radios that used to be hard wired
  • Necessity was the mother of invention so I developed my first PIC based CAN box to translate PWM and hardwire messages to equivalent CAN messages to retrofit older vehicles for radio testing on CAN radios. 
  • Dec. 2021 I did some consulting CAN work and required access to CAN bus monitoring / reverse engineering and had to borrow ValueCan with a 1 month free license and then I had no more access
  • Necessity was again the mother of invention as I struggled and asked “how hard could it be?” to make my own CAN interface
  • After testing Arduino based solutions, I searched for a viable SW option that would work with it and I came across a starting solution from Sebastian Langer and reached out and we pooled our strengths and contacts and merged and formed a strong partnership into this concept and here we are today
