My project is to take CANopen inclinometer angles from a tilt sensor, convert to simple serial ASCII angle data and output to a serial port.
I’ve got a Sparkfun CANbus shield and a MCP2515 CAN Bus Interface.
So far all I’ve been able to achive is to get the Arduino (Uno) to confirm that it can sense the shield but that’s about it. I can’t even get a serial.print of the raw data from the shield.
Has anyone else had any success interfacing Arduino/Serial/CANopen? I’d appreciate any suggestions or jump-starts because right now, I’ve achieved basically zero.
Is CANopen that much different to normal CANbus?
