» CAN Bus 03: Get Vehicle Speed

This sketch shows how to get the Vehicle Speed using the standard OBD-II PIDs codes. This codes are used to request data from a vehicle, used as a diagnostic tool.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x CAN Bus
1 x OBD cable

Notes

- Waspmote must be powered with a battery
- CAN Bus was designed to work in automotive applications, but it can be used in other communication areas.
- The CAN Bus library integrates the most important PID functions, but it does not include all of them.
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v12 and Waspmote v15
