Today we’d like to highlight Jeff’s efforts to show a two-node CAN system. Knowing very little about CAN, he mimicked a rear view camera to prove it can be done. We love seeing projects that set out to prove things.
I am currently working on a project where I want to simulate ALL the module CAN messages in a vehicle. while using the CAN to detect system problems, clear DTCs and essentially be the controller node for all the network.
I thought it would be simple to use the G400D, (Found it last week), I Never used this gageteer stuff before, but have used C# for a long time.
I have code that should work. It runs without error, but no data appears on the CAN and it does not see the messages I am inserting from a known good source. I am monitoring with other CAN tools that I know work. A scope shows that there is nothing coming out of the G400 yet there are no faults or error messages. All the voltages seem fine.
