Re: CAN-FD,CAN BUS communication with Raspberry Pi

You will probably find some CAN interfaces listed for the Raspberry Pi, but all current cars are using so narrow-timed protocols, that they can only be managed by a dedicated CAN controller. Just my few cents... You may be able to get the very basic functionality in compatibility mode, but not much ...

Hey rin, if your Pi had handful of 1/8watts underneath like LTolledo then start rehearsing Bye Bye Pye song.

With XRDP and a good remote computer, you can run many instances of the desktop, each one providing an own monitor.

That is NOT a catch22 ! The Pi used as a master may very well have a monitor/keyb/mouse attached. It must not be the same model e.g. an Pi3b+ or a Pi3a+ which do not need any extra adapter will perfectly do. With one of them you start a Pi Zero W or a Pi4 effortless an intuitively without need for a...

If anyone fancies having a go at this (or any stuff they think is useful), they are more than welcome. We like good ideas, especially when others do the work that we don't have time to do.
I have promised to try and I'll do my best.

What is the first thing that you should do when you get a new Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 and want to begin tinkering? The very first thing is at least to put the Pi on 4 spacers !
