CAN Shield for OpenMV Camera


Elmwood Electronics has stopped accepting orders. This product might be available at PiShop.ca. Please check this blog post about our recent team merger.

The CAN Shield allows your OpenMV Cam to communicate with other devices on the CAN bus. The CAN Shield can handle baud rates up to 1 Mb/s. The CAN Shield additionally features a voltage regulator on-board so you can power your OpenMV Cam with 12V too.

The DB9 connector on the CAN Shield connects to a normal DB9 CAN Connector and also the OBDII bus layout which can be selected via solder bridges on the bottom of the CAN Shield.

Please see the CAN Module and our CAN Example for how to send and receive CAN data.


The CAN Shield is useful for connecting your OpenMV Cam to a CAN network. For example, with the CAN Shield you can easily hook your OpenMV Cam up to any FIRST Robotics systems. Or, alternatively, up to any automotive CAN networks.
