In order to debug Carloop without getting in and out of the car, @jvanier came up with a really cool tool. The Carloop CAN Simulator. That is what I call it anyways, but it is so cool! If you've got a Raspberry Pi lying around, this is your opportunity to make it into a full fledged CAN simulator.
Hi @alanm, can you include some details on how I can get the Raspberry Pi CAN simulator running ( maybe here or a readme file on the github). I have a first gen Pi and would like to use it as a simulator.
I wrote up some information about the hardware and software for the simulator.
The software is currently sending hard coded messages and printing messages it receives to the console. If you have suggestions of what would be useful, please write it here.
Thanks a lot @jvanier for the detailed information.
I built up a couple of the simulators, but I am having SPI issues.There have been some recent changes with overlays in Raspbian.
Would you mind posting the changes you made to your config.txt?
I have not spent enough time with my RPi3 to have an answer for you.@jvanier may know more, but appears to be really busy with work at Particle.Maybe try the Raspberry Pi forums have some clues in the meantime?https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/
Alright. Thanks for getting back to me. I will see where I can get.
