Howdy! its been a bit over 10 years since my last project (68hc11, ATmega128), and i see the technology has moved on to a better place - but i didnt have the chance to keep up with it.
Its time for the soldering iron to be broken out & i’d love a leg-up from the forums on what would be a suitable parts list for building a CAN reader for a vehicle. I searched around the shop site here and this is my best guess for a system (here goes questions):
Q:Would an Arduino starter kit with a CAN shield and a Freetronics128x128 play nicely together?
(i guess a DLC connector wouldnt go astray either)
I don’t need to actually make an xx.xdegrees readout, i was thinking of having two columns of little bar charts that go red/flashing/sound buzzer if a temperature exceeds some threshold. The driver would know to bring the vehicle in from that. I work in the motor industry, so I should be able to track down the CAN frame data from colleagues so i don’t have to do any serious bus sniffing or anything… but… is there anything non-compatible in above parts list?
hope that makes sense, D
