There has been some positive developments on the ability to interface with the car via the OBD port. This will probably mean we can query the car using diagnostic protocols and pull some information back out.
I am hoping to be able to say exactly what messages need to be sent (i.e. CAN ID and Payload) as well as how to interpret the messages coming back out (decode bytes to signals).
This “should” mean we can interface with almost any OBD compatible device. My first thoughts are obviously OVMS as well as Bluetooth dongles (e.g. ELM327 with Android).
I wondered if anyone here has had any experience or would like to learn more about the following?:
- OVMS development
- ELM327 Development/API use both Wifi and Bluetooth(BT)
- Android App development and use of the BT interfaces
- iOS Development and use of BT/Wifi interfaces
I know this will need to be a collective effort, and I am pretty sure we have the skills to try this out. I am hoping that I can link us all up and build a few teams/contacts up to develop this. If you have any experience or interest please can you let me know.
Thanks in advance
