This paper revisits basic message response time analysis of controller area network (CAN). We show that existing message response time analysis, as presented in [10], is optimistic. Assuming discrete scheduling, the problem can be resolved by applying worst-case response time analysis for fixed-priority non-preemptive scheduling (FPNS) as described in [4].
