    That sounds like a good plan. I have put some information about the USB protocol used by the MCP2515DM on my website. There is also some example code.

    nobdy doesn't look like something I would use (the libqt and dbus dependencies are enough to turn me away, plus it looks like it does a lot of stuff I don't need). But I'm happy to share some basic...

    CAN bus adapters are expensive, so I'm using the Microchip MCP2515DM-BM demo board ($55 for two, plus shipping). Effectively it is the same thing for a much lower price. I wrote all the software...
