This is a cool video using a Tek MDO3104 4 Channel Oscilloscope to collect auto CAN buss data. Here he uses a Tesla though this would also work for any other CAN buss system.

Didn't realize Tektronics made an o'scope that would decode a CAN buss data stream. That's a pretty cool application.

Get ready to empty the wallet if you're going to buy Tek stuff...the price is right up there with the quality!

I called on them some time ago to show off some of my group's products and one of the FAEs was drooling over a little museum they had onsite. After the meeting, he was bitterly cursing Tek because the meeting was a total time waster with only a guy who was about to retire and hadn't done anything productive in about a decade in attendance on their side...I don't understand why they took the meeting when they didn't really want to talk about the products I was showcasing. I'm sure our FAE didn't jump for them the next time they called him for help...

Where I work we use Vector tools for sniffing vehicle CAN buses.

Very sweet tool set and simple to use.
