Hello Laszlo, all

It is possible to expand this idea a little. For example, to add some 
add-on for support
of some industry protocols: ModBus, DNP3, IEC101-104, CAN and so forth.

It is possible to implement a certain basic concept of Protocol for all 
heritable protocols with
ISO/OSI model support (or like that).

Of course, it is necessary to make so that as transport it was possible 
to use Serial, Socket
or something else, through QIODevice.

For example, I could take on myself Modbus implementation.

Best regards,

It would be a leisure time project for me without anyone supporting me financially or so. Of course, contributions would be welcome from automotive, medical or any other professionals.

> There was an attempt for a module called "OpenCAN"  in the past as far as I understand, but it is a bit old-fashioned with the old can support of the Linux kernel. Also, it seems to handle different devices slightly differently instead of using as much abstraction from the operating system as possible. Also, it is a bit tied to a company, not to the Qt Project.
> It would be nice to push Qt a bit forward in an unusual area: the automotive world. What do you think?
