Topic: Comunicating with CAN bus (Read 550 times) previous topic - next topic

I understand the concept of CAN bus, but am having problems finding examples of how you send / format the data string and how you know what you are reading when you connect to a device. 

For example lets say I want to know or send the following:
- Engine RPM
- Voltage
- Status
They are all "on the bus" but I have no idea how to get the value for each?
Are they named / ID in some way, and is there any standard parameters that are used in CAN bus? 

Google has failed me on this one  =(

CAN bus does not use textual message formats. In order to understand what you are receiving, you need to know the protocols being used. I can't imagine how Google failed to locate a description of how CAN bus works, but here is a starting point:
