Abstract
Many products already exist which can transmit some information using OBD through network communication. However, OBD products released in the market only for providing the information regarding driving and vehicle diagnostic services. In this paper, we developed a method which provides the alarm service to the drivers when their driving behaviors are not in the good condition. This proposed method sends those information using vibration motor or multiple LED on the basis of the data they received from the vehicles. It can be divided into two part: transmission part which collects vehicle data received from OBD and receiver part which informs drivers of their driving habits using vehicle data. The result of drivers’ driving habit can be installed on vehicle’s steering wheel, so that drivers’ bad driving habits can be improved. In addition, IoT product can preventpossible car accidents and can reduce the vehicle breakdown rate. Moreover IoT products can impact on a better gas millage.
