Vehicle data retrieving

  • Which will serve better for the purpose of data retrieving from vehicles, NodeMCU or Rasberry pi

    It is for the purpose of securing information via blockchain. (we want to store the retrived data using blockchain)

  • @Abhay can you please let us know what kind of vehicle data would you require?? Because there are very easy ways I can suggest if what parameters do you want to obtain from vehicles?

    And also let us know whether you are planning to require the data for cars???

  • Hi @Abhay ,

    I don't know what exactly your application is or what you are going to do with the data is ? if you want to read vehicle data you can use OBD-II CAN-BUS development kit. also for the esp vs raspberry pi decision is also depends upon what you are doing with the data.

  • @kowshik1729 accelerometer reading, gps location, airbag activation etc. Are the main reading were are looking at present. We are planing to collect it from car as a live demo and store it using blockchain.

  • @salmanfaris OBD devices are in every new cars right, I don't know if I am right but I think we need seperate android app to collect data using obd and i think it don't retrive accelerometer reading i guess.

  • Hi @Abhay ,

    Yes, OBD interfaces are now available in most the cars these days , you can get the vehicle sensor data using the OBD interface and you can process it using any controller like esp8266 or something.

    Car => Data => OBD => Micorcontroller

  • @salmanfaris don't we need seperate android apps for collecting those data.?

  • @Abhay As you mentioned, I strongly feel that, the infotainment systems inside the cars these days aren't serving data like GPS location and all. I have used the OBD(On-Board Diagnostics) module in order to acquire data like Fuel tank levels, acceleration of the car, Brake levels, Battery levels, etc., In order to acquire the data like GPS you can install your own GPS module like UBLOX GPS sensor which can be easily interfaced over UART of any MCU's like ESP8266, ESP32, Arduino etc., and pertaining to your last question in the thread I would say "NO" you don't need any separate android apps to obtain data from OBD devices(if they are Bluetooth enabled). Because OBD's like ELM327 is Bluetooth enabled and hence you can use a simple Bluetooth terminal app to connect and get the data.

  • Hi @kowshik1729
    Thank you for the insight. Will definitely post further queries here as we progress on the project. Hope you could suggest answers like these again. Thank you

  • @Abhay Glad that it helped you. Yes, I can suggest you with the queries as far as I know. All the best..!!โœŒ

    @Anudeep Thanks a lot m8, I actually made a very silly mistake of including the https:// while entering FIREBASE_HOST, where I must have entered the Domain name alone and removed the https:// extension.

    Thanks again for replying that quick. Cheers.

    Hello @Palani, In the Firebase, there are two types of storage,

    Cloud Firestore (Very recent one & NoSQL database) Realtime Database (To which we upload the data using NodeMCU)

    In the Arduino Code, you can see that there is a variable named FIREBASE_AUTH.

    This variable should be assigned to the Database secret. This you can find in Project Settings -> Service accounts -> Database Secrets.

    My mistake is, i have mistakenly assigned thay to Web API key. This is found at Project Settings -> General.

    The error can also occur when u don't initialise a proper realtime database in Firebase. (This is not my case).

  • @kowshik1729 If you are using an external high-speed switch, there is only one one clock generator for both wifi and BLE and the high-speed switch you mentioned is Ultra-Wideband (UWB) 3โ€“8 GHz from its datasheet


    you also check this solution that I shared in the previous post.

    @salmanfaris said in BT and WiFi Dual Core simultaneous operation using ESP32?:

    There is a special option called โ€œSoftware controls WiFi/ Bluetooth coexistenceโ€ it can control the ESP32's Bluetooth and Wi-Fi coexistence using software, more details:
