Get up and running with our Telematics software

OBD Experts can provide you with ready-to-use OBD II software to get you up and running quickly.

Our OBD II Software is organized into a simple hierarchy of software layers called a protocol stack. The OBD II protocol stack includes the source code for all OBD II protocols. The software includes a user API and a demonstration file as well as distinct OBD and Hardware Abstraction Layers. In addition to the OBD II Software you also receive comprehensive documentation on how to get started with your development and one year of off-site support.

OBD Experts licenses software to some of the largest telematics companies in the world and our software is at the heart of hundreds of thousands of telematics devices.

USE OBD II DATA TO ENHANCE YOUR TELEMATICS DEVICE

OBD II data like VIN, Speed, RPM, and Fuel Level can make your Telematics product stand out from the crowd. Click on an icon to learn more about some of the many parameters available using On-board diagnostics.

Fuel

The Fuel Level can be a very lucrative parameter for car rental companies. It can also be used for tracking fleets and smart-phone based applications. Fuel level is supported on 52% of cars in North America manufactured after 1996 (86% of cars since 2010).

VIN

The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is a unique number assigned to every car. The VIN can be decoded to determine vehicle make, model, year, engine size, and more. VIN is supported on 91% of cars in North America manufactured after 1996 (99% of cars since 2010).

Vehicle Speed

Vehicle speed is one of the most fundamental pieces of OBD II data for most telematics suppliers. It can be used to monitor driving and create a running odometer. Speed is supported on all cars in North America manufactured after 1996.

Engine RPM

The Engine revolutions per minute can be used to determine if the car is running and to monitor driving behavior. When combined with the vehicle speed, RPM can detect if a vehicle has been left idling. RPM is supported on all cars in North America manufactured after 1996.

MIL

The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) is illuminated upon detection of a problem with the engine. If the MIL is illuminated this means that there is an error number, called a Diagnostic Trouble Code, stored in the on-board engine computer. Use OBD II to read the DTC code and diagnose the problem. MIL status and DTCs are supported on all cars in North America manufactured after 1996.

Engine Coolant Temperature

This is one of many useful OBD II parameters when it comes to monitoring the health of your car or fleet. Engine Coolant Temperature is supported on all cars in North America manufactured after 1996.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions?

When you purchase the complete OBD II Protocol Stack you will receive the source code for all the OBD II protocols. The source files are written in C and organized with a layer of abstraction to the hardware-specific code so that porting of the code to alternative hardware platforms is kept simple. Currently the design is built and tested using an STM32F103 high density ARM Cortex chip so all the actual calls to this chip and the STM32’s library code are provided too. On top of the stack sits a simple API that attempts to connect to one of the protocols, and if successful loops through a file requesting the desired modes and PIDs from the ECU(s).

When you purchase the OBD II Protocol Stack you will be required to sign an agreement stating you will not sell it to any 3rd party, however, you will be able to use it freely – including all modifications – in your company products.

You will not only receive the source code (written entirely in C) but you will also receive comprehensive documentation on how to get started with your development. You also get direct access to our engineers by phone and email, as well as entry to our on-line support page.

All our licences come with off-site support. This is phone and email support for any question that your engineers may have about how the software works, porting, or even general questions about OBD II. There is also a support page on our website that you may access using a password. During your support period you will be notified of bug-fixes if any operational bugs are reported in the software by any of our other clients.

The OBD II protocol stack is usually licensed for a one-off perpetuity fee. The licence includes off-site support. We can also provide monthly payment licences on the source code on a case-by-case basis. Contact us for more information.
