OBDII Odometer

The OBDII Odometer is a smart interface cable that communicates with a vehicle's on-board computer to determine the current vehicle speed. It outputs real time vehicle speed over an RS232 serial data interface. When connected to one of Advanced Navigation's Spatial series of GPS/INS products it allows for outstanding navigation accuracy when GPS is not available.

Features

Supports Almost All Vehicles
Supports Almost All Vehicles
With built in support for eleven different OBDII communication protocols, the OBDII Odometer supports almost all modern vehicles on the market. It is completely plug and play with no setup required and can be switched between vehicles in seconds.
ABS Speed and Reverse Detection
ABS Speed and Reverse Detection
On GM, Ford and some European vehicles, the OBDII Odometer is able to retrieve vehicle speed from the ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) system which provides a very high resolution speed. On all other vehicles the OBDII Odometer will provide speed from the transmission which is still a very accurate reference. The OBDII Odometer is also able to determine when the gearbox is in reverse on a range of vehicles.
Miniature Durable Design
Miniature Durable Design
The OBDII Odometer has a miniature in-line design that is easy to fit into any vehicle. It features a strong ABS plastic shell and tough strain relieved cabling.
Reliability
Reliability
The OBDII Odometer is protected from surges, reverse polarity, brown outs and overvoltage to continue operating through harsh electrical conditions. It's communications interface is optically isolated to prevent ground loops and protect sensitive equipment connected to it. It is built on top of a safety oriented real time operating system and all software is designed and tested to safety standards with fault tolerance in mind.

Applications

Urban Navigation
Urban Navigation
In urban environments where multipath is a big problem for GPS/INS units, the OBDII Odometer can help to increase accuracy and reduce position drift.
Security
Security
In security applications where GPS systems may be jammed, the OBDII Odometer can assist a GPS/INS to continue providing accurate positioning through jamming.
Surveying
Surveying
In surveying applications that require continuously accurate positioning even when passing under heavy tree coverage and through tunnels, a GPS/INS combined with the OBDII Odometer is able to provide the results required.
Mining
Mining
For mining applications that need to monitor vehicle speeds around the site for safety, the OBDII Odometer can be used standalone to easily retrieve the required data without any intrusive installation.
