This project aims to develop a device able of collecting, on-board of a vehicle, a set of data that is usable for various applications: estimation of fuel consumption and emissions, production of indicators in terms of safety and comfort, maintenance and fault records, or simply to obtain data for the evaluation and qualification of driving behavior. The device processes the collected information, stores it in flash memory and transmits it via a bidirectional link data via mobile network (GPRS) using IP (Internet Protocol) to a server on the Internet. The device is connected to the OBD port, from which receives power supply and collects the information available in accordance with the standard EOBD. It also has additional sensors to measure atmospheric pressure (altimeter), vehicle acceleration in three axes and a GPS receiver. The device also supports Bluetooth and USB connectivity and it can operate autonomously in the event of loss of power supply from the OBD port.
