By Stephen Chavez & Specter

Projects that use this

Raspberry PI setup

To install PiCan2 on pi3, add to /boot/config.txt:



SocketCAN setup

Add the following lines under file /etc/network/interfaces

allow-hotplug can0
iface can0 can static
        bitrate 125000
        up /sbin/ip link set $IFACE down
        up /sbin/ip link set $IFACE up

Add these kernel modules under /etc/modules


Reboot the pi! Then you should see an can0 interface listed under the command ifconfig


$ git clone
or sudo apt-get install can-utils

R-Net command examples from the terminal

$ candump can0 -L   # -L puts in log format
(1469933235.191687) can0 00C#
(1469933235.212450) can0 00E#08901C8A00000000
(1469933235.212822) can0 7B3#
(1469933235.251708) can0 7B3#

$ cansend can0 181C0D00#0840085008440840  #play a tune

$ cangen can0 -e -g 10  -v -v     #fuzz buss with random extended frames+data

$ candump -n 1 can0,7b3:7ff     #wait for can id 7B3

Or run python3 to control a R-Net based PWC using any usb gamepad connected to the pi3.

Python 3 is required.
