Excellent work guys, thanks again

Hello Palliser the foot is coming along.  I'm now able to walk on it but I still have the boot on my foot, still it feels good to be on both feet again.  I see you got your second DUE, while gathering the things I need for my board I'm also working on learning more about Arduino programming.  I should be good and ready by the time I'm able to move around more.

Nice, I'm going to try my hand at making my own surface mount board.  I need to get my hands on a laser printer first.  For testing I'll start with making a board just to hold the tranceiver.  If all goes well I can have the trancievers plus the other components I need for my project.

Hi that_kid. I am sorry to know about your broken foot. Just take it easy. Even thou I have my shield working OK, I still looking for a better out-of-the-shelf board that fits better the design. I am also working on some eagle files to build, at some time, my own design. Remember that for the two transceiver we are going to need 8 pins of the Arduino DUE (CANRX0, CANTX0, CANEN0, CANRS0, CANRX1, CANTX1, CANEN1, CANRS1). For my tests, I didn't use the EN and RS pins. I just connected them to +3.3 and ground respectively.

Thanks Palliser, I was also thinking of building my own board as well.  I have some other parts I want to add for other functions from the DUE.  In the meantime I'll just get a small board that I can mount the transceivers to for testing.  The good thing about not being able to move around much is that I can think more about my designs.

Thanks for the update, I have my samples in but now I need to get a board to solder them to.  My goal is to make my own board but that won't happen until I recover from my broken foot.  Meanwhile I'm getting everything that I can ready to help with the testing.

Hi Palliser, any progress on this?

All those collections of letters make sense. That collection of words does not.

that's a nice result of auto completion from my phone.  It really knows how to mess things up.

So, you clearly DO know how to get the Arduino to pass data to the PC.


Yes I can get it to the serial monitor but I want to be able to get the information to a canbus monitoring program on the computer.  I guess what I'm after is a way to dump the data i'm getting from the canbus over the arduino's com port so that I can view it with software like that from canhack.de.

Your what?
It's the navigation radio in my car.  I just added it for reference.

The "infotainment" bus?


Yes the infotainment bus that's located my car.  There are three Canbus networks in my car 1.Drive Train 2. convenience 3. infotainment
The infotainment bus is what the navigation, radio, amplifier, steering wheel buttons and a few other things ride across.

And do what? I hope you realize that the Arduino is NOT a radio.

It's not??  I thought I could add a CD, radio and tape deck shield and it would work j/k

I removed the radio and replaced it with a car computer (apparently the words carpc mean nothing to you so I spelled it out).  The car computer provides all the functions of the original navigation radio plus much more.  So I want to be able to control parts of the computer from things like the steering wheel controls and also be able to put navigation information on the cars drivers display like the original nav unit did.

"interface with" is such an overused, and meaningless term. No idea what a "carpc" is. Is that some kind of fish?

See above
8  Using Arduino / Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer / Need help coding Arduino to pass Canbus data to computer on: December 07, 2012, 12:27:05 pm
I've been trying to wrap my head around this but i'm at a loss.  I have server different windows Canbus monitoring software but I don't know how to code the Arduino to pass the info it gets from the Canbus to the computer so I can use the programs.  I can have the information scroll through the serial monitor but I need an easier way to be able to see the the changes in data. 

In addition to above does anyone have any information on building a Canbus gateway?  What I want to do is place the gateway between two nodes so I can identify what node sends what.  My ultimate goal is to read the information my RNS2 head unit sends to and from the infotainment bus then use the Arduino to emulate the radio and interface with the carpc. 

The code i'm using as a starting point is from seedstudio http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/images/5/55/CAN_BUS_Shield.zip

Excellent news, I'm just waiting on my parts to arrive from mouser.com  I was going to order the engineering samples but I needed some parts so I just went ahead and get it all.  Next stop is to see if my local radio shack has the shield that you are using.

I have my Due and now it's time to order the transceivers.  I'm going to get both the 234 and 235's.  Which ever ones I don't use in the car I'll use on the work bench.  Thanks for tackling this.

This is very exciting, I'm still learning about CAN and have just barely gotten my feet wet so I'm not sure how much I can contribute but I'm available.

I believe you will have to access the canbus from somewhere other than the obd connector.  I access my comfort bus from behind the radio in my VW.  In my car I also have a infotainment bus although most of the information I want resides on the comfort bus.
