CAN bus sniffing APIs added for Freematics ONE+ Model B

We have just added CAN bus sniffing APIs to the Arduino library for Freematics ONE+. Currently the CAN sniffing feature is only available in Freematics ONE+ Model B. A simple CAN bus sniffing example sketch is also added.

CAN sniffing is interesting if you are have some insider information or good at reverse engineering, so some vehicle data outside the scope of standard OBD-II PIDs can be extracted.

Another product supporting CAN sniffing at the moment is Freematics OBD-II UART Adaper V2.1. This post has some information about the AT commands for CAN sniffing.

GNSS antenna for SIM5360

We now supply external GNSS antenna (SMA interface) for SIM5360 cellular module when you order Freematics ONE+. Using SIM5360’s internal GNSS is more cost-effective than standalone M8030 solution when 1Hz update rate and slightly longer satellite locking time are acceptable.

CAN sniffing AT commands published for OBD-II UART Adapter

Freematics OBD-II UART Adapter V2.1 comes with CAN sniffing features. We are now publishing the AT commands for this purpose. The adapter’s Arduino library has also added APIs for doing CAN sniffing from Arduino sketch.

Bringing OBD-II vehicle data logger to next level

We are working intensively on the next generation of Freematics ONE (namely Freematics ONE+) with Espressif ESP32 as main controller which boosts the device with 240Mhz dual core processing power, 520KB RAM, 16MB flash as well as WIFI and BLE connectivity. 2G and 3G modules are still plug-in as xBee module. There will be integrated GPS receiver while the socket for external GPS receiver is still kept and can be programmatically configured for generic digital/analog I/O as well. This will truly make the vehicle data logger the Swiss army knife for vehicle telematics project. Stay tuned!

MegaLoggerHD is released

MegaLoggerHD is a reworked version of MegaLogger which targets at the new Telematics Shield with 3.5″ LCD of 480×320 resolution designed for our OBD-II Telematics Advanced Kit. It supports both Freematics OBD-II I2C Adapter and UART Adapter V2 (by switching in config.h). The code has just been committed to github. This is the initial revision. Subsequent improvements will be followed.
