What is can4eve?
- is a software for electric vehicles
- it reads, analyzes, visualizes, stores and replays CAN bus data from the vehicle taken via an OBDII adapter
- is an open source software project see https://github.com/BITPlan/can4eve
|KIA Soul EV||not supported but we are looking for alpha testers|
|Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV||in preparation and we are looking for alpha testers|
|Mitsubishi i-Miev||supported and looking for alpha and beta testers|
|Opel Ampera||not supported yet - we are looking for alpha testers|
|ELM327 China USB||not recommended/limited/use at own risk!|
|OBDLink LX||indirectly supported e.g. via rfcomm or ip forwarding on linux|
|VGate ICar 2||not recommended/limited/use at own risk!|
can4eve is written in Java It has been tested on
An Android version is in preparation.
Since Apple does not support Java on the iPhone and since Microsoft does not support Java on some of its environments can4eve would have to be ported to run in these environments. Currently there are no concrete plans to work around this. Since can4eve uses JavaFX it is certainly feasible to get an iPhone and other ports. Oracle mobile might also be a future option to support many more mobile devices.
State of the project
- the software is in beta state - it has only been tested with a few vehicles so far
- To install you might want to follow the Installation instructions.
- We are looking for more beta testers see e.g. german Triplet and Outlander PHEV forum
- https://github.com/BITPlan/can4eve/issues/4 is been worked on see Simple Report

Building the software yourself
can4eve uses maven a build platform see test video below.
Developer / Unit Test
The software runs a test suite on each release. If you want you can run the automated tests for can4eve yourself on your own development platform. The following video shows an example of such a test run and how it should work in your environment in principle. The nice side effect is that you get a preview of some of the features of the software this way.
Running from command line
As of 2017-06 the jar created by the rebuild script is compiled for the Triplet vehicles.

Our App not only gives you access to internal information at your fingertips, it will also track the health of the Li On drive battery over time and against distance.
Leaf Spy Lite lets a Nissan Leaf owner view detailed information about their Leaf's battery by plugging in an inexpensive ELM-327 Bluetooth OBDII adapter into the standard OBDII port on the Leaf. ELM-327 Bluetooth adapters are available on eBay for around $10-$20 and one is required before Leaf Spy Lite can display information from your Leaf.
TM-Spy uses a standard ELM 327 type Bluetooth or WiFi OBDII adapter to decode information from the CAN service plug located below the center display screen. Check the internet for how to access this cable and the specifications for the custom adapter cable required to go from the Tesla 12 pin connector to the standard 16 pin OBDII connector which the ELM 327 adapter plugs into.
