Less is more and i was happy about each component and each thing which has not to be configured to address reliability and a good user-experience.
So what does it take to wire up a CAN logger? Here is a quick ingredient list:
- Raspberry Pi (all Pi's tried apart from RPi Zero)
- 7 pole female-female jumper cable
- MCP2515_CAN Module
- Power Supply
- 8GB uSD card
- Everything else is optional
I think in a first run there will be a complete image file including the distribution. So download an image, copy it on SD, plug in and run.
The recipe would then just to put the components together, attach it to ethernet, CAN_H and CAN_L and thats it.
