I have been spending a significant amount of time trying to find an answer to this but cannot find the full solution. I would appreciate some help on the issue. A bit of background to my issue:
- I am designing a set of hardware and software tools that can be used to quickly assess and test components in a car that utilise CAN protocol
- The objective of the set of tools is that anyone with Simulink can grab this kit, connect it up to their laptop and rapidly run a model through Simulink in order to send a few messages to the hardware and read the response. It has to be using simulink
- The hardware consists of (but is not limited to) an Arduino Uno and an MCP2515 CAN controller module (https://makerfabs.com/Comunication?product_id=340)
- I have the CANdbs for the hardware I'm trying to test
I have been using the "Simulink Support Package for Arduino" for communication and can drive parts of the 12V components, however when it comes to sending a CAN message, I'm having trouble constructing the blocks to achieve this. I have been trying to use the "CAN device driver for mcp2515" and the CAN blocks from the "Vehicle Network Toolbox" but have come up short.
Could someone provide feedback on the attached image and help guide me towards a solution? I'm not sure if I'm being a bit dim or I've gotten something fundamentally wrong.
