Vehicle Network Toolbox Product Description

Communicate with in-vehicle networks using CAN, J1939, and XCP protocols

Vehicle Network Toolbox™ provides MATLAB® functions and Simulink® blocks to send, receive, encode, and decode CAN, CAN FD, J1939, and XCP messages. The toolbox lets you identify and parse specific signals using industry-standard CAN database files and then visualize the decoded signals using the CAN Bus Monitor app. Using A2L description files, you can connect to an ECU via XCP on CAN or Ethernet. You can access messages and measurement data stored in MDF files.

The toolbox simplifies communication with in-vehicle networks and lets you monitor, filter, and analyze live CAN bus data, or log and record messages for later analysis and replay. You can simulate message traffic on a virtual CAN bus or connect to a live network or ECU. Vehicle Network Toolbox supports CAN interface devices from Vector, Kvaser, PEAK-System, and National Instruments®.
