This project is about - how to build a interface between an OBD-2 vehicle data bus
and a smart phones using Bluetooth SPP.
The project was started in early 2005 to develop a low cost but high quality data
link between your vehicle and mobile device as open-hardware. The state-of-the-art
design envolved since than and includes an automotive grade power management with
the ability to read multiple vehicle protocols with a single unit and combine with
GPS/G-Force sensors of your mobile device.
If you are looking for one of these:
learn about OBD-2?
analyse driving performance?
track and trace vehicles?
full access to CANbus via bluetooth?
ESD protection and automotive design?
you should go definitely with blueOBD®!
Most people asked over the time to get a module for lower cost and having a chance
to build something by their own. The used protocol chip translates diagnostic protocols
to messages which can be received via high speed serial link. This data stream is
exposed to and Bluetooth Serial Port Profile 2.0 so you don't need a cable between
vehicle and smartphone. Supported protocols: ISO 15765-4 CAN, ISO 9141-2 KW and ISO
14230-4 KWP. Optinal: J1850 PWM/VPW.
* BREAKING NEWS * NEW DESIGN *
The latest revision of blueOBD defines the first and smallest interface between your
Android™ phone and your vehicle using wireless communication. Meanwhile blueOBD has
been seen building a link to personal navigation systems too.
The blueOBD got redesigned and comes up with one of the tiniest and fully certified
Bluetooth module on the market. Testing has been done on bases of the new Google
‚Nexus One’ running Android 2.1. Now it is out in the wild for your order:
The Bluetooth module runs on 3.3V level and class 2. But don't worry, you will not
need an SMD workbench - the tiny SMD parts are soldered in an industrial manufacturing
line. You can decide on housing, wiring, sourcing an ELM-327 chip
or just get the complete board. The size is approximately 39x28 mm.
