This project is an approach to build a set of tools for analyzing, simulating and visualizing a CAN system (Controller Area Network)
This tool is still in draft phase. In long term this tool shall allow to monitor the CAN and send CAN messages.
The plotter supports displaying various signals on a simple plot chart.
Indented to be used as a base for a machine HMI (human machine interface) using QML to describe the visualization.
The project will resemble KCD file format (see Kayak project) to handled network and message descriptions.
For building this under Ubuntu 12.04, please install: $ apt-get install libqwt-dev libqxt-dev
$ qmake $ make clean all
You need to supply the CAN channel, the signal database and scale information: $ canPlotter/canPlotter --channel vcan0 --kcd-file ./can_definition_sample.kcd --busname Motor --left-scale-name "Speed" --left-scale-signals="CruiseControlStatus.SpeedKm/red,CruiseControlStatus.SpeedKm/yellow"
