  • Talk to your car, a Python program which communicates with a vehicle's onboard diagnostics (OBDII) interface. It is currently capable of displaying a number of data points (fuel pressure, RPMs, temperatures, etc) as well as some basic graphs of data as it is being generated. It also reads trouble codes and check engine lights. The program uses the ELM-327 OBDII interface chip. Student Blog
