replay

Retransmit messages from CAN bus

Syntax

replay(canch, message)

Arguments

 
 

Description

replay(canch, message) retransmits the message or messages message on the channel canch, based on the relative differences of their timestamps. The replay function also replays messages from MATLAB to Simulink

To understand the elements of a message, refer to canMessage.

Input Arguments

canch

The CAN channel that you specify to transmit the messages.

message

An array of message objects to replay.

Examples

This example uses a loopback connection between two channels where:

  • The first channel transmits messages 2 seconds apart.

  • The second channel receives them.

  • The replay function retransmits the messages with the original delay.

ch1 = canChannel('Vector', 'CANcaseXL 1', 1)
ch2 = canChannel('Vector', 'CANcaseXL 1', 2)
start(ch1)
start(ch2)
msgTx1 = canMessage(500, false, 8)
msgTx2 = canMessage(750, false, 8)
%The first channel transmits messages 2 seconds apart
transmit(ch1, msgTx1)
pause(2)
transmit(ch1, msgTx2)
%The second channel receives them
msgRx1 = receive(ch2, Inf)
%The replay function retransmits the messages with the original delay.
replay(ch2, msgRx1)
pause(2)
msgRx2 = receive(ch1, Inf)

The timestamp differentials between messages in the two receive arrays, msgRx1 and msgRx2, are equal.
