I-bus reader / writer for Bmw and Mini
I'm on the way to make a tiny thing to read and decode I-bus for linux.
Actually i can't show it working because i can't approach the car enough from home to plug the device, so i will make the reverse and drop this bit of software in the car's computer, if it works ok then i'll release this tiny thing which can be usefull for some bimmer and mini owners.
So the main panel (black one) is howing connection status and rough data as it comes on the i-bus, the line under shows the sentence and more under the sentence decomposed in it's meaning.
We also have the possibility to send arbitrary hexadecimal code to the i-bus.
buttons open and close are acting on the port.
If all this works as planned then i will also add a logging towards a file to retrieve the sawn codes, this sould avoid writing on paper and would avoid errors as well.
