Qt based cross platform canbus tool (C) 2015-2018 EVTV and Collin Kidder
A Qt5 based cross platform tool which can be used to load, save, and capture canbus frames. This tool is designed to help with visualization, reverse engineering, debugging, and capturing of canbus frames.
Really requires at a resolution of at least 1024x768. Fully multi-monitor capable. Works on 4K monitors as well.
You are highly recommended to use the CANDue board from EVTV.
The CANDue board must be running the GVRET firmware which can also be found within the collin80 repos.
It is now possible to use any QT SerialBus driver (socketcan, Vector, PeakCAN, TinyCAN). There may, however, be some loss of some functionality as some functions of SavvyCAN are designed for use directly with the EVTVDue and CANDue 2.0 boards.
It should, however, be noted that use of a capture device is not required to make use of this program. It can load and save in several formats:
- BusMaster log file
- Microchip log file
- CRTD format (OVMS log file format from Mark Webb-Johnson)
- GVRET native format
- Generic CSV file (ID,D0 D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7)
- Vector Trace files
- IXXAT Minilog files
- CAN-DO Logs
- Vehicle Spy log files
- CANDump / Kayak (Read only)
- PCAN Viewer (Read Only)
Now this code does not depend on anything other than what is in the source tree or available from the Qt installer.
Uses QCustomPlot available at:
However, this source code is integrated into the source for SavvyCAN and one isn't required to download it separately.
This project requires 5.8.0 or higher because of a dependency on QSerialBus. However, you will get even more SerialBus goodness if you use QT 5.11 or 5.12
Instructions for compiling:
Download the newest stable version of Qt directly from qt.io (You need 5.8.x or newer)
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/collin80/SavvyCAN.git cd SavvyCAN ~/Qt/5.8/gcc_64/bin/qmake make
Now run SavvyCAN
Compiling in debug mode for additional information
qmake CONFIG+=debug make
What to do if your compile failed?
The very first thing to do is try:
qmake make clean make
Did that fix it? Great! If not, ensure that you selected SerialBUS support when you installed Qt.
What to do if
qmake fails with error
