Real-Time Remote Onboard Diagnostics Using Embedded GPRS Surveillance Technology

This article describes an onboard diagnostics (OBD) system that utilizes general pack-radio service (GPRS) for air pollution monitoring of the vehicle on which it is equipped. A diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is generated from microprocessors that are attached to sensors monitoring vehicle outputs. By tracking such information using real-time surveillance, the DTC can then be communicated via GPRS mobile communication to a general server and to the Internet. Using raw data from such servers, regulatory agencies will have an easier time keeping track of where environmental protection is most needed. The proposed system developed here for such purposes is described at G3, as it incorporates Global Positioning System (GPS), GPRS, and geographic information systems (GIS) to provide the desired surveillance level.
