Can Bus

If you want to run a study in a real car or calculate your own driving performance metrics D-Lab CAN Bus is what you are looking for. Simply connect the cars CAN Bus to D-Lab and the data will be recorded within D-Lab. All data on the CAN Bus can be recorded synchronously with other input channels like an eye tracker or physio devices.

Plan – Measure – Analyze
Prepare your study by defining the different CAN Bus interfaces that shall be recorded. Visualize all data sources in realtime and perfectly observe the experiment. Replay and analyze all recorded data channels on numerous freely configurable diagrams.


– Record encrypted or decrypted data from multiple CAN interfaces
– Realtime visualization of all recorded channels
– High End visualization in analysis mode to normalize data
– Integrated scripting language to calculate user defined values and metrics
– Build-in statistics to aggregate data over multiple subjects
