OBD: On Board Diagnostics Port ( https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/obd-ii-port-used/ )

The need and the requirement of Vehicle Telematics is growing by the day. Acquiring a range of OBoard Data is emerging as a necessity rather than a fancy feature.

What better way to get OBD data than the OBoard Diagnostics port of a vehicle.

The OBD 2 Port that is a standard fitment in all Vehicles in India today is the only non-invasive way to access vehicle operational and performance data.

By plugging into the OBD 2 Port via Automobile Industry grade CAN Interface ZUPPA VeTRACK extracts a range of information from the Vehicle Like

  • Fuel
  • Vehicle Speed
  • Location
  • Battery Voltage
  • Ignition Status
  • A/C Status… and much more

The Vehicle can also be immobilized through the OBD2 Port.

Advantage of Plug & Play OBD2 Devices

OBD2 devices like ZUPPA VeTRACK (AIS 140 Vehicle Tracking Systems) that operate through the OBD interface of a vehicle and transmit data over the Mobile Data Networks to Dedicated Dashboards or APPS get more than just the location. This kind of information has the potential to reduce service costs by monitoring Vehicle Parameters and taking preventive actions prior to actual breakdowns.

OBD2 Devices can be shifted between vehicles without any changes to the vehicles wiring there by being a major boon to Logistics company’s requiring portable VTS to track leased vehicles.

OBD2 Devices Future Ready

The OBD2 Interface is the Gateway to the future as far as Vehicle Telematics is concerned.

Hence a device like ZUPPA VeTRACK that operates through the OBD 2 Port of a vehicle is future ready to deliver vehicle data apart from knowing its location. It can be updated and configured remotely Over The Air (OTA).

One of the key requirements of Vehicle Telematics going forward is user friendly devices that can be installed easily without the need for a trained technician to cut wires inside the dashboard of the vehicle and connect them perfectly to ensure flawless operations of the device.

ZUPPA VeTRACK OBD 2 AIS 140 VTS is exactly the type of a USER FRIENDLY DEVICE that can be easily installed by any person having basic knowledge of configuring the APP.

ZUPPA VeTRACK INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

Installing ZUPPA VeTRACK OBD2 AIS 140 VTS device is as simple as using an APP on a Smart Phone:

Step 1: Plug in the OBD2 Connector to the port of the Vehicle

Step 2: Go to Google Play/ iPhone APP store and download the Flitrack APP

Step 3: Log into the APP using the supplied Login Credentials

Start Tracking. Set Alerts, Geo Fence etc by following the APP’s setting up procedure.

GET YOUR SELF A FUTURE READY OBD2 AIS 140 VTS ITS GOING TO BE CUMPOLSURY FOR ALL PUBLIC TRANSPORATION VEHICLES LIKE TAXI’S , BUSES , TRUCKS , TEMPOS ETC FROM 1/4/2019
