GPS to CAN is a device designed to provide position information over CAN BUS. The module uses a combination of different navigation systems (GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo) as well as an internal IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit). Position, acceleration, and yaw information is transmitted at an update rate of 20Hz. Position data can be used to measure lap times, estimate current lap time, draw track maps and analyze vehicle logs with respect to track position.
The GPS to CAN device must be programmed using a CAN interface. The ECUMaster USB to CAN, Kvaser, or Peak PCAN may be used.
