A Python library to connect to an OpenXC vehicle interface

Project description







vehicle, openxc, python Documentation Status

The OpenXC Python library (for Python 3.6.7) provides an interface to vehicle data from the OpenXC Platform. The primary platform for OpenXC applications is Android, but for prototyping and testing, often it is preferrable to use a low-overhead environment like Python when developing.

In addition to a port of the Android library API, the package also contains a number of command-line tools for connecting to the CAN translator and manipulating previously recorded vehicle data.
