Abstract (Summary)

The advancement of smartphone technology in recent years has opened windows to many new applications and products such as the personal vehicle self diagnostic tool, portable navigation system, and even mobile TVs. In this thesis we attempt to extend the reach of the smartphone technology by developing a low-cost remote diagnostic system. Taking advantage of the Internet and wireless Bluetooth connections on the smartphone, and combining with a vehicle's Onboard Diagnostic System (OBDII) technology we demonstrate that it is possible to develop a low-cost remote diagnostic system for vehicles. Regardless of where you are on the road, with this system it would be possible to connect to a service center of your choice where a trained mechanic can retrieve vital vehicle data and diagnose your vehicle thereby enabling you to make an informed decision on the repair. We expect a product based on this demonstrated concept will result in financial and time benefits to the consumer with respect to both vehicle maintenance and repair.
