App for Freematics OBD-II Emulator now available in App Store

Our Freematics Emulator App is now available in App Store, finally! Actually Apple is quite fast on approval of hardware interactive App. The most time was spent on the delivery of the inspection unit from AUS to 1 Infinite Loop. Here are several screenshots of current version of the App. We are going to update it very soon as quite some improvements have been done already while waiting for the approval.

Data charting service up running again

Our Data Charting Service has been experiencing some difficulties for a while. After some server updates and fix-up applied recently, it is now up running again. The Data2KML utility was updated as well. Please make sure to use latest Arduino sketches with your Telematics Kit to do data logging so that the logged data can be parsed and rendered into chart and map correctly.

Freematics @ Sydney Mini Maker Faire

Freematics was on the stage of Maker Faire for the 4th time. The weekend spent in Powerhouse Museum for Sydney Mini Maker Faire was just as exciting as the previous ones we went for. One slight difference was that some visitors had already heard about us online and some even had purchased our products before. It was good to be face-to-face with users, whether past or potential, and we got lots of good feedback.

See you two weeks later at Sydney Mini Maker Faire

After having taken part in the Maker Faire Bay Area in May, we are heading for PowerHouse Museum in Ultimo, Sydney. Two weeks later we will present our 4th Maker Faire exhibition worldwide and the 2nd one in Sydney. The event website has already posted a brief introduction. In the coming exhibition, we will focus on our just upgraded Arduino OBD-II data logger kit #3 and the new generation of OBD-II emulator and demonstrate both of them on site. Come to see the products and us if you are around!

Freematics OBD-II Emulator MK2 ready for order

After 3 month’s development and testing, Freematics OBD-II Emulator MK2 is now ready for order!

Freematics OBD-II Emulator MK2 is world’s smallest OBD-II emulator with KWP2000, ISO9141 and CAN bus simulation. It provides a 16-pin female OBD-II port which is identical to that of a real car and responds to requests for standard OBD-II PIDs from plugged-in OBD-II compliant device. It emulates up to 6 active vehicle diagnostic trouble code (DTC) as if a real car has when encountering a component malfunction or fault. Request for VIN is also responded and the VIN can be altered.

The emulator connects to PC via USB cable and is operated via an easy-to-use software GUI. Secondary development is possible with serial TTL connector available for connection of interaction with Arduino or other embedded system with source of data (e.g. sensors).

Freematics OBD-II Emulator is practically useful and cost effective for OBD-II related application development on desk. Once extended with external data source, it can even be used to provide an OBD-II port for vehicles that don’t have a real one and thus existing OBD-II device/software can also work with the vehicle.

To learn more about the new emulator, please see here. If you have any good idea or suggestions about this product, let us know via the forum.
