Is it possible to capture CANBUS using WS on a PC

asked 2019-03-13 15:07:14 +0000

I am somewhat new to WS. I have only used it to debug Ethernet packets. I am looking at using some flavor of CAN (CAN, CAN FD, CANopen) in an industrial environment and need a way to capture/debug the CAN traffic using WS on a PC running Windows 7 or 10. Is it possible? Will WS detect/interpret the data frames? How can I get the data off of the CAN bus and into the PC? Anyone have a suggestion on an adapter that will work with WS? CAN-to-USB? CAN-to-Ethernet? Thank you for your help.

I use Bluetooth enabled OBDII diagnostic tool and free software from Google Play (search for OBD or OBDII to get 20+ free apps)

if you select bluetooth as your interface, you are home

My friends from San Francisco have turned Acura into self-driving car, having installed computer to control power steering, acceleration and more via CANBUS

BTW Could you remove captcha spam generator, requiring me to solve 20+ puzzles to prove I am an intelligent robot ?

Something like this might meet your needs:

There are a lot of CAN tools here, too:

Some of the CANbus analyzers have their own analysis software. But nothing wrong with trying to use our favorite packet analysis tool for CAN as well.
