Real Time Clock

Real time Clock Configuration

For correct time stamping it is necessary that the RTC is configured with the correct time. A new rtc configuration command is added to the OpenXC message format.

Example JSON command

{ “command”: “rtc_configuration”, “unix_time”: “1448551563”}

To set the RTC to the correct unix time on Windows Git Bash, Mac, or Linux shell, use the following command:

% TIME=$(date+%s); openxc-control-set --time $TIME
