I recently found out that Linux supports CANBUS in the kernel.
Are you using this support with amb?
Yes. See the CAN plugins.
I see you mention scantool.net
I have yet to try but do their products work with the Canbus Socket drivers
now included in the latest linux releases?
No. The OBD-II scantools are supported through either bluetooth or usb serial.
I own the SX scan tool (USB - OBDII)
And I also have a microOBD 200 module that will be hard wired into a vehicle
and may add additional modules.
I also have some FreeScale i.mx6 quad boards that have canbus built into
them. These boards are the similar to what now comes in the 2016 Cadillacs
as the base for their linux based CUE IVI systems. I have to believe those
two are accessible via linux through the Can - socket drivers now included
I am curious because I want to hook up to both my newer vehicle and older
vehicle and do some investigation via Wireshark but also start writing some
IVI related software but want to insure I can use the hardware I already own
or order compatible hardware if necissary.
