How much would it cost to develop an ELM OBD Based Car Diagnostic application?

What is an ELM OBD Chip?

ELM OBD is known to be an IC that is used for the vehicles compatible with the standard OBD-II (On Board Diagnostics) protocols. The primary purpose of these ELM OBD chips is to fetch the data of the car engine (ECU) to perform car diagnosis. It is a 16-pin Male chip that is plugged into OBD-II port, a female OBD-II interface of the cars. All cars, manufactured since 1996, are OBD-II compatible with this ELM chips.

Using Bluetooth and Wi-fi technologies, these OBD-II chips can now provide data that can be transferred instantly on server. The data is used for predictive analysis and more given what other technologies and sensors one can built around it.

Why Car Tracking & Diagnostic Application Development is needed?

Any individual or a fleet owner would like to cut down the maintenance cost of the vehicles for sure. Only a few years back, people could determine neither the health of vehicles they drove nor what exactly happened when any vehicle broke down. They simply ended up paying hefty maintenance bills and got on with that. Some would care getting into the details, but only through the experts which also consume their time and efforts.

IoT technology has changed the scenario completely- Now your car actually talks to you whenever you want. Leveraging IoT and Bluetooth/GPS technology, it is now possible to fetch all the data from car’s ECU. Predictive analysis is performed in order to derive the results. This will show if the vehicle needs a service on a particular part, which would help vehicle owners to exactly know what needs to be done.

Benefits of Car Diagnostic Applications

The concept of Connected Cars is the one which automobile industry is looking forward to implement. Car diagnostic application can be a potential solution for everyone, from fleet management companies and fleet owners to individual owners who may have one or multiple cars to look after. Some of the benefits of car diagnostic application are:

  • Cost effective and easy to install

  • Improve vehicle protection and driver's safety

  • Advance diagnosis to prevent breakdown or malfunctioning

  • Compatible with the most make and models after 1996

  • Improved efficiency and pollution reduction

  • Improved driving behaviour with real-time GPS tracking

  • Predictive analysis resulting reduced maintenance costs
