PandaJS

Interract with your panda OBD-II Dongle from JavaScript.

Supports

  • [x] Browser
  • [x] Node
  • [ ] React Native

Installation

npm i --save @commaai/pandajs

or

yarn add @commaai/pandajs

Usage

import Panda from '@commaai/pandajs';

// create instance
var panda = new Panda();

// register listener
panda.onMessage((msg) => {
  console.log(msg.address, msg.busTime, msg.data, msg.bus);
});

// start reading data
panda.start();

// pause data
panda.pause();

// resume reading data
panda.unpause();

// close connects and take everything down
panda.disconnect();

API

new Panda([options]) -> Panda

Creates a new Panda instance

  • options (optional object)
    • selectDevice: (optional function(devices, callback)) A user defined function for selecting which available device to use, parameters are an array of discovered devices and a callback function. The method can either return the desired device, return a promise, or use the callback function. There is no timeout for this method, so make sure it eventually does one of those three things. This option does nothing in browser mode since webusb has it's own UI for selecting the device.
    • wifi: (optional boolean) Enables wifi mode, communicates with the panda device over an already established wifi connection with it. This option will throw errors if you enable it in browser mode.

Methods

Panda.connect() -> Promise: string

Tell the Panda instance to connect to USB. Does not start reading messages until you call start. On success, returns the ID of the USB device found.

Panda.disconnect() -> Promise: boolean

Disconnect from the USB device and stop everything. Returns true if it was running before.

Panda.start() -> Promise: string

Tell the Panda instance to connect to USB if it's not already and start reading messages. On success, returns the ID of the USB device found.

This function is the same as running

panda.connect()
  .then(() => panda.unpause());

Panda.pause() -> boolean

Pauses reading in messages from the active connection. Returns true only if the stream was not already paused. While paused messages will queue up on the Panda device, however this queue has a limited size so pausing may result in missed messages.

Panda.unpause() -> boolean

Pauses reading in messages from the active connection. Returns true only if the stream was paused.

Panda.resume() -> boolean

Alias for unpause.

Panda.isConnected() -> boolean

Returns true if the panda instance is currecntly connected to a USB device.

Panda.isPaused() -> boolean

Returns true if the panda instance currently has message reading paused

Panda.getHealth() -> HealthStatus

Requests the current health of the Panda unit. Only available while connected, returns the health object on success or errors.

  • HealthStatus: (object)
    • voltage: (number)
    • current: (number)
    • isStarted: (boolean)
    • controlsAreAllowed: (boolean)
    • isGasInterceptorDetector: (boolean)
    • isStartSignalDetected: (boolean)
    • isStartedAlt: (boolean)

Panda.getDeviceMetadata() -> [string, string]

Requests both the serial number and secret from the Panda device. This is used internally to power getSerialNumber and getSecret.

Returns an array with 2 items in, the serial number and then the secret.

Panda.getSerialNumber() -> string

Requests the serial number.

This function is the same as running

panda.getDeviceMetadata()
  .then((result) => result[0])

Panda.getSecret() -> string

Requests the secret used for wifi among other things.

This function is the same as running

panda.getDeviceMetadata()
  .then((result) => result[1])

Panda.getVersion() -> string

Requests the string version number, output will look something like v1.0.1-11d45090-RELEASE

Panda.isWhite() -> boolean

Query if the Panda device is a white Panda. Returns true if it is white.

Panda.isGrey() -> boolean

Query if the Panda device is a grey Panda. Returns true if it is grey.

Panda.isBlack() -> boolean

Query if the Panda device is a black Panda. Returns true if it is black.

Panda.hasObd() -> boolean

Query if the Panda device has a connection to the OBD port. Returns true if it has an OBD port connection.

Panda.setObd(connected) -> void

Connect Panda device to the OBD port (if supported and parameter is true).

Panda.setSafetyMode(mode) -> void

Sets the safety mode on the Panda device.

  • mode: (required SafetyMode) The safety mode to enter. Must be a valid safety mode, safety modes are exposed as constants on the root of the library.
import { SAFETY_NOOUTPUT, SAFETY_ELM327, SAFETY_ALLOUTPUT } from '@commaai/pandajs';

Events

Panda.onMessage(listener) -> function

Register a handler for receiving messages. This should be done before calling start to avoid missing any messages. Returns an unlisten function that will disable the listener when called.

  • listener: (required, function (messageData)) Handler to call each time messages are received
    • messageData: (object)
      • time: (number) High precision time in which this event was received.
      • canMessages: (Array<CanMessage>)
        • bus: (number) The bus this message came from
        • address: (number) The bus specific address for the message
        • busTime: (number) The recieve time according to the bus
        • data: (ByteArray) Raw data for this message

Panda.onError(listener) -> function

Register an error handler. Returns an unlisten function that will disable the listener when called.

  • listener: (required, function (err)) Handler to call when errors occur
    • err: (object)
      • error: (Error) Error object incurred
      • event: (string) Description of where the error occured

Panda.onConnect(listener) -> function

Register a handler to run when successfully connecting to a Panda device. Returns an unlisten function that will disable the listener when called.

  • listener: (required, function (usbId)) Handler to call when connected
    • usbId: (string) The ID of the USB device connected to.

Panda.onDisconnect(listener) -> function

Register a handler to run when disconnecting from a Panda device. Returns an unlisten function that will disable the listener when called.

    • usbId: (string) The ID of the USB device disconnected from.

Command Line Tools

This package ships with 2 CLI tools. Check the --help on each to see all of their options.

dump-can

  isGasInterceptorDetector: false,
  isStartSignalDetected: false,
  isStartedAlt: false }
Connect finished, waiting then reading all messages...
Start reading...
Message count: 1
First message CAN count: 256
First CAN message: { address: 420,
