According to Statista, “Every year the lives of approximately 1.35 million people are cut short as a result of a road traffic crash. Between 20 and 50 million more people suffer non-fatal injuries, with many incurring a disability as a result of their injury.”

This may be due to improper functioning of the vehicle or rash driving behaviour. As these consequences also affect country’s overall GDP growth along with personal losses, an IoT based automotive solution is the primary need to bring that level of awareness with car/ vehicle safety.

Importance of on Vehicle Diagnostic Systems:

Implementation of OBD-ll became mandatory after 1996 for all cars. As a result, all light-duty truck and medium-duty vehicles are having OBD-II port integrated. It helps to check emission, fuel economy, low-performance indication, and scores of other minute issues. Before Implementation of OBD-II, drivers were bound to visit garage physically with their vehicle to fix even the small faults and waste a lot of time. It invariably resulted in decreased efficiency of fleet operations.

Moreover, It is always very expensive to pay repair bills in the absence of OBD reader. In addition, The Driver should be knowing the vehicle’s technical aspects as modern vehicles are not easy to repair. The OBD scanner tools have turned it into budget friendly and time saving solution with the possibility of self-diagnosis and immediate reporting on malfunctioning of the specific component. It eliminates unnecessary repairs with complete information.

For instance: When the vehicle engine is malfunctioning, the driver might think that it’s time to tune the engine, but perhaps, the system just needs oiling. When the driver gets the same information on the dashboard and reads it with the OBD-ll scanner, they can easily pinpoint where the problem is and find out whether it’s in their control to fix or not. When the faults are minor, they can be fixed easily at a low cost than rushing for an authorized service center or garage. Below is the list of 5 generic codes which can be detected using an OBD Sensor.


Why OBD2 based Vehicle Diagnostic App is needed?


Road Accidents are caused by two basic factors – improper driving and non-maintenance of vehicle. These road accidents cost $518 billion globally, costing individual countries from 1-2% of their annual GDP. With KarConnect, we aim to save those numerous lives and build a better global economy by reducing the loss of GDP.

Expensive diagnostic sensors in the market
