The new Freematics OBD-II Emlator will come with a GUI on PC (Apps on iPad and Android in future). The hardware of the new product is complete and ready to ship. However, the software develop is still under-going and this held back the release of the product. Finally it’s nearly done. Here is a glance of the GUI.
With the GUI for the emulator, it’s possible to adjust more (almost all) OBD-II PIDs in the highest possible precision. More importantly VIN and DTC can be altered and set. An ignition switch makes it possible to emulate the status on OBD-II port when ignition is on or off. More interesting features will come later, including data playback and external data sourcing.
The popular Freematics OBD-II data logger kit #3 has just got better. After coming back from the Maker Faire Bay Area, we upgraded the kit by replacing the 2.8″ TFT LCD screen shield with a newly designed 3.2″ TFT LCD shield with built-on I/O sockets and optional Bluetooth module. The new TFT LCD based on SSD1289 is perfectly supported by the latest revised version of MultiLCD library now. This makes screen larger (also faster) and eliminates the need for a I/O shield in the middle of TFT LCD shield and Arduino MEGA board. The Bluetooth (BLE or BT 2.1) capability is provided by a CC2540 module soldered on the back of the shield which is connected to Arduino MEGA’s Serial3.
