CAN Bus on the Jetson Nano


for home automation I want to integrate on the Jetson Nano Devkit a CAN Bus connection.

Any hints regarding that?
Is it possible to do so?

Which Trasceiver? MCP2515 breakout board?

Thank you very much for any hints!


Yes, there are two options: to connect some board via SPI (may be not MCP2515 based), or to connect some USB2CAN board.

I just received a Nano, still not tested any solution, but think that usb will be easier for setup.

Would you please give me an update if you were successfull? Thank you.

USB2CAN works for me, I bought CANable Pro and use candlelight firmware. Base version also should work.
