This paper reviews the research work done on the Modeling and Analysis of Wireless Controller Area Network (WCAN). The controller area network (CAN) has been long regarded as the pioneer in standardizing vehicle bus standard. Its influence has even been reached out to various applications in industrial automation; which includes military, aviation, electronics and many others. With wireless technology becoming more pervasive, there is also a need for CAN too to migrate and evolve to its wireless counterpart . A few methods were proposed in the last decade [2-6] that utilized the advantageous of CAN into a wireless network system called wireless controller area network (WCAN). This paper reviews these approaches of WCAN.
