CAN Tools – CANalyzer & CANoe

Course description

This course aims to introduce both CANalyzer and CANoe for the purposes of interacting with a CAN network by reading and logging the data on the CAN bus. Additionally, simulations of partial or complete CAN networks which can interact with physical CAN buses will be introduced, demonstrated and finally built. Upon completion of the course, the user should be comfortable in using both softwares for both measurement and simulation of complex CAN networks. 


Basic knowledge of CAN networks and messages, which can be attained through Infotiv's Basic CAN Course, as well as basic programming skills. 

Course content

  • Introduction to both the CANalyzer and CANoe software suites
  • Reading, logging and replaying data from a CAN network
  • Defining and building a complete database of nodes, messages and signals to be used either in interpreting messages from a live CAN network or for simulating whole or parts of CAN networks virtually.
  • Programming nodes in a CAN network using the CAPL programming language.
  • Creating and using panels, a type of graphical user interface, to interact with a simulated or real CAN network in real time.
  • Extensive laboratory exercises which go through all basic functionality and sets the student up to create their own virtual vehicle by the end of completion.

Course Completion

The Infotiv Canalyzer/CANoe course gives the student the ability to analyze CAN buses using external hardware as well as how to install and setup the hardware. The student will also be able to simulate a CAN network, display graphs over signals and create interactive panels to manipulate the CAN network.

Estimated completion time: 10 hrs
