UAVCAN, PX4 and SITL

Hi everyone,

I am quite new to PX4 and SITL itself. I have a rather ordinary question. Is it possible to use SITL to simulate a UAVCAN based device and write/test applications for that device. I am working on project with a company that is using UAVCAN based sensors in their drone. I have the task to write some modules to be used on the drone. However, since I don’t have the actual hardware, how do I make sure the module I write will work on the actual UAVCAN based device as well?

Any help or pointers in this regard will be much appreciated. Thanks

Hi, This was shared to slack on your behalf. The response was:

@Jacob_Crabill : Now that @Peter van der Perk added a SocketCAN driver for UAVCAN v0, this is a feature I’d like to implement. It should be doable, but I don’t think it will just work as-is right now.

So the answer is no, not right now. Hopefully in future.
