canSignalImport

Import CAN log file into decoded signal timetables

Description

example

sigtimetable = canSignalImport(file,vendor,database) imports a CAN message log file from the specified vendor directly into decoded signal value timetables using the provided database. The function returns a structure with a field for each unique message in the timetable. Each field value is a timetable of all the signals in all instances of that message. Use this form of syntax to convert an entire set of messages in a single function call.

example

sigtimetable = canSignalImport(file,vendor,database,msgnames) returns signal timetables for only the messages specified by msgnames, which can specify one or more message names. Use this syntax form to import signals from only a subset of messages.
