OpenXC automotive API for Android

Posted on Saturday, September 28th, 2013 in Android, code by the machinegeek

OpenXC is an API to your car – by installing a small hardware module to read and translate metrics from a car’s internal network, the data becomes accessible from most Android applications using the OpenXC library. You can start making vehicle-aware applications that have better interfaces based on context, can minimize distraction while driving, are integrated with other connected services, and can offer you more insight into your car’s operation.”

The image above shows a Chipkit MAX32 based vehicle interface (VI) which allows DIYers to start experimenting with OpenXC with off the shelf parts.
