CANvis iOS App (iPhone and iPad)


CANvis is a user customizable interface for communicating with CAN networks via WiFi. Interfaces are created using the PC based CANcreate software and downloaded to the app via iTunes. The app can then connect to an HMI Systems WiFi to CAN bridge and view all CAN network traffic in a visual format.
A demonstration of the app can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0ZifwKqRpk
