> Probably best to continue the discussion on the ovmsdev mailing list, as others there are interested in progress (especially dpeillow and Marcus).
Yes. answer to the list.
> What you have below is a 'cyclic' log. Good for identifying unique messages (by ID) seen on the bus. Can you see if canhack has a normal logging mode to just log all messages with a time stamp?
i will do my best.
> What type of PC do you use? Linux, Mac or Windows?
For this first i use a PC with XP.
> From what RScott has written, the can bus you are on looks to have what we want. I understand everything stops when car is turned off. But, can you try recording while charging and see if it still stops?
Yes, it stops too when it is charging.
> I think that as a starting point we should target a limited amount of information, to just try to get something working and see how feasible this is. Specifically, I suggest:
> SOC% (CAN ID #206)
> GPS Latitude and Longitude (CAN ID #32A)
> Vehicle Speed (CAN ID #3E9)
> VIN (unknown CAN ID, but supposedly there)
> From the document at:
> these should be:
> CAN ID Location Data Units Notes
> 206 Bytes 1-2 Battery SOC .250kWh Units possibly .244kWh
> 32A Bytes 1-4 GPS Latitude Milliarcseconds
> 32A Bytes 5-8 GPS Longitude Milliarcseconds
> 3E9 Bytes 1-2 Speed 1/100 MPH 55MPH would be 5500 (0x157c)
> Looking at your capture, you have:
> 206 3 69 C3 00
at this time the battery was charging. i think ist was between 30 and 40 %.
you must know that the lowest usable Battery power is at 30% an full is at 90%.
i will got the next log when the battery is full
> 32A 8 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
> 3E9 8 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
> Probably your car was stationary or in the garage without GPS signal?
it was stationary in front of my house with clear view to the sky.
> RScott's sample data is:
> 11:48:49.885: 206 628600
> 11:48:54.955: 206 5FCA00
> 11:48:49.636: 3E9 0BAC01AC0B3C019E [Speed 29.88MPH]
> 11:48:49.870: 3E9 0C3B01C20BED01B4 [Speed 31.31MPH]

> Drive down a stretch of road at a constant speed, while logging. Then, get the approximate latitude and longitude of your position and speed you were at, and matching capture of ID #32A and ID #3E9.
i only have two hands. :-)
> Put the car in the open air, so it has a good GPS signal. Then, get the exact latitude and longitude of your location, and matching capture of ID#32
> The VIN number of your car.
> Based on that, we should be able to setup OVMS to capture this and transmit it on to the OVMS server/apps.
> Do you want me to create the framework for this in can_voltampera.c? Maybe easier for me to create the first few messages, and then for you to adjust and fix, as I know the code so well.
ok, so it looks good.
> This is looking really promising. Your 104 captured IDs seem to match RScott's 105 almost exactly, and most of what we need has already been discovered.

>> But, ... we have a problem! 10 seconds after the car is shut down the is no more traffic on this CAN bus. 12V are still there.
>> But there are three (3) more CAN Buses in this car. Really!
>> Two at the OBD2 Connector driver side and two at the OBD2 Connector Passenger side.
>> I will made me some adapter to get access to this Signals. Hope they still alive after shutdown the car.
>> Here is the small Log: (i think this is NOT a time based log. it seems that this is a log from all seen messages)
