There’s a difference between knowing the location and condition of your vehicles, and knowing where they are and how they’re doing right now. Intel’s on-board diagnostics-II (OBD-II) dongle turns virtually any vehicle into a connected device capable of real-time data analysis and feedback. Trucking employees can receive immediate feedback, a driver’s insurance rate can be lowered in real time for safe driving, and first responders can dispatch personnel more efficiently.
The Intel® Atom™ processor-based OBD-II dongle solution is a pre-certified, regulatory-compliant aftermarket vehicle instrumentation platform. Designed to collect data streams from any OBD-II–compliant vehicle, it’s built on open Android* and Linux* operating systems. It gives developers quick API access to the underlying vehicle interface, significantly reducing development cycle times, hardware investment, and the time and expense of obtaining certifications.
Featuring a 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU running on 64-bit architecture, the dongle offers exceptional performance, with a low-power draw. It also features a highly integrated dedicated modem hardware unit and hardware-based security features such as secure boot and encryption accelerators.
Developers looking for greater customizability can leverage a module based on the Intel® Atom™ x3-C3205RK processor to design a solution that meets their specific embedded telematics needs. It offers logistics and asset tracking, embedded telematics, and more. The module provides the developer a low-power performance solution with the communications capability to enable robust telematics solutions.
