NativeScript and OBDII

Mehfuz has written a NativeScript plugin to interact with ODBII sensors.  We will publish a proper post in the blog but, in a nutshell, it uses the BLE APIs on an Android device to interact with an ODBII sensor like this one:

The plugin encapsulates the functionality into a Javascript/NativeScript friendly abstraction.  The application builds on the Plugin and is a pure NativeScript app.  Here is a screencast:


The ODB II Bluetooth adaptor is for Android only because the Bluetooth APIs on iOS are restricted to MFi devices and there are very few of those – most ODB II iOS devices use WiFi instead.

NativeScript is a natural technology for this type of applications.  I’ll add a link to the proper post when it goes live.
