Based on Freematics ESPRIT C3, the ESP32-C3 dev board in Arduino UNO form factor, together with 1.3" OLED display and Freematics OBD-II UART Adapter, this kit can be programmed with Arduino (ESP32 core) and is easy to start prototyping for connected car applications.
ESP32 has built-in BLE and can be configured to work as GATT server which smartphones and tablets with BLE can connect to. It can also work as GATT client to connect to other BLE central device.
ESP32 has built-in 802.11 b/g/n WiFi transceiver and can easily work as a web server or client.
The kit consists following parts.
To assemble the kit,
The example code (simple_obd_display) can be downloaded here or obtained from Github. The download zip file also contains libraries for the OLED display and Freematics OBD-II UART Adapter. The code runs as car live data display. Once the OBD-II adapter is connected to a car's OBD port, it powers up the kit and live data from the car will be displayed on the OLED display.
The board comes with the code pre-flashed so the kit will work right away after assembled and powered.
