does the racecapture/track MK2 do Transmit CAN via LUA?

Post by burn4005 »

Hi,

I want to purchase a racecapture device to use as a GPS/IMU sensor to transmit GPS, accelerometer and Gyro data to my ECU via canbus.

I know the racecapture/pro has LUA scripting to create TX CAN frames to send to an ECU, but can the new racecapture/track MK2 device do this?

it says in its specifications:
Scripting / Customization:
Real-time virtual (math) channels / custom channel mapping Via on-board Lua scripting
but i wanted to confirm this was true before purchasing one, and if any limitations existed compared to the race capture pro.

Thanks

Hi,

Yes, you can use the same Lua scripting to broadcast CAN data with RaceCapture/Track MK2, just like RaceCapture/Pro. See the Lua scripting examples in the wiki.
