Crate canparse[][src]

A CAN signal and definition parser, written in Rust.

The goal of canparse is to provide a means of converting CAN frames into pre-defined signals, via CANdb definition input (DBC). One common application is the J1939 spec, which defines a set of common parameters for heavy-duty trucks and other vehicles. PgnLibrary is also included as an application of DBC, to give first-class support for the PGN/SPN schema.


For a predefined DBC file, a simple program which utilizes PgnLibrary can be implemented as folows:

extern crate canparse;

use canparse::pgn::{PgnLibrary, SpnDefinition, ParseMessage};

fn main() {

    // Parse dbc file into PgnLibrary
    let lib = PgnLibrary::from_dbc_file("./j1939.dbc").unwrap();

    // Pull signal definition for engine speed
    let enginespeed_def: &SpnDefinition = lib

    // Parse frame containing engine speed
    let msg: [u8; 8] = [0x11, 0x22, 0x33, 0x44, 0x55, 0x66, 0x77, 0x88];
    let engine_speed: f32 = enginespeed_def.parse_message(&msg).unwrap();

    println!("Engine speed: {}", engine_speed);
