Topic: CAN BUS shield using 2 computers (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hi i am new to Arduino stuff,
Was wondering if there is any way of using the arduino uno to send data from one computer via the CAN BUS shield and display it onto another via another shield and arduino uno. I am a newbie to programming so any code would be helpful.



My first response is 'Yes of course'... But I'm assuming you mean the following scheme:



yes that is what i meant. As i say i have next to no expierience with stuff like this so i am coming at it rather blind


Consider this the best meathod of learning! you may want to pull your hair out in the beginning, but you'll feel pretty good when it works.


If you are just using CAN as a simple point-to-point link it's a bit of an overkill. Or are there other reasons for using it?
