This chapter focuses on the stochastic analysis of the timing performance of CAN messages. Worst-case analysis based on schedulability theory allows to verify the timing correctness of a CAN subsystem. However, as discussed in the previous chapter, CAN messages carry the signal data realizing communication in (possibly complex) end-to-end functionality, in which the flow of data and control may go across several nodes and networks. In this case, timing analysis can be used to compute the contribution of messages to end-to-end latencies and provides the architecture designer with a set of values (one for each end-to-end path) on which he/she can check correctness of an architecture solution.
