Battery data analysis by CANoe software

Post by Rohit Yadav » May 08 2020 12:40am

Dear all,
I am working on BMS technology. I am using CANoe software by Vector. I get battery data in .MDF file. I want to process it with python file. Can anyone tell me the method which i can use to extract information from this MDF file generated by CANoe file with python. (suggestion with MATLAB is also fine)

Thank you

I've worked with CANalyzer quite a few years ago which I believe is similar to CANoe. I'm sure the SW has changed a lot over the years.

Isn't there an option to export trace data in a comma/tab delimited file format? That would probably be easier to process/parse with Python or even something simpler like Excel if necessary.

Edit: Check out these knowledge base links from Vector.

Looks like you can do ASCII logging files as well instead of the MDF binary format.

And you should be able to convert the log files to Excel.
