Using Raspberry Pi as Hardware for Vehicle Network Toolbox
7 views (last 30 days)
I just stumpled over the Vehicle Network Toolbox and it's great!! :) I am working on a project in which I want to use the Raspberry Pi as an Interface between Matlab/Simulink and a Car. I want the communication to be based on CAN. I already successfully installed the Raspberry Pi support packages for Matlab and Simulink. I am considering to use the PiCAN2 Duo as additional hardware to make the Raspberry Pi be capable of the CAN protocol: http://skpang.co.uk/catalog/pican2-duo-canbus-board-for-raspberry-pi-23-p-1480.html
My actual question is: Is it possible to use the Raspberry Pi Support Packages in combination with the Vehicle Network Toolbox ? So that the Raspberry Pi is somewhat seen by Matlab as the CAN-Hardware of the VNT.
Thanks you and all the best, Jakob from Berlin

Starting from R2021b, you can use the MATLAB Support Package for Raspberry Pi Hardware to read and write CAN messages from the CAN network on Raspberry Pi hardware using "canChannel":
The example mentions that this should work for the PiCAN2 DUO shield.
When used with Raspi, this function does not even require a Vehicle Network Toolbox (VNT) license.
