A module for interacting with the OBD (On Board Diagnostics) of vehicles via ELM 327 connections.
npm install obd-parser --save
After this you will need to install a module that facilitates connecting to the ECU. At present only obd-parser-serial-connection is available - this requires a USB to OBD connection such as these.
npm install obd-parser-serial-connection --save
// In your code this should be changed to 'obd-parser';// Use a serial connection to connect;// Returns a function that will allow us to connect to the serial port;// Need to initialise the OBD module with a "connector" before startingOBD.initconnectorFn.then;
Currently the module has support for a limited number of PIDs. PID support can easily be added by adding a new PID definition in lib/pids/pid.ts. You can find information that will assist PID implementation on this Wiki.
For the most up to date list see this directory, or the below list:
- ENGINE_COOLANT_TEMPERATURE (05)
- FUEL_LEVEL_INPUT (2F)
- ENGINE_RPM (0C)
- VEHICLE_SPEED (0D)
If using TypeScript you can also type "OBD.PIDS" and intellisense will display available options.
Initialise the parser. connectorFn should be a connector function generated by a module such as obd-parser-serial-connection.
OBD.ECUPoller(args: PollerArgs) (Class)
A class that can be used to create ECUPoller instances. These must be passed an args Object that contains:
- pid - An instance of any PID, e.g new OBD.PIDS.Rpm()
- interval - The number of milliseconds two wait bewteen polling if startPolling() is called.
You should only create one instance of a given ECUPoller and PID combination at a time unless you're sure about what you're doing.
Sends a poll to the ECU for this ECUPoller's PID. Returns Promise that will resolve with an Object matching the OBDOutput interface. If you want you can ignore the Promise and instead bind a "data" listener like the example in this README file.
ECUPoller.startPolling() and ECUPoller.stopPolling()
Starts a constant poll loop that queries as near to the args.interval passed to this ECUPoller. If it is not receiving responses it will not send new polls even if it reaches the interval since we want to prevent flooding the ECU.
This is an Object with PID Classes attached, currently valid options are demonstrated below:
;new OBD.PIDS.FuelLevel;new OBD.PIDS.Rpm;new OBD.PIDS.VehicleSpeed;new OBD.PIDS.CoolantTemp;// This is the base class used by all above PIDS. You might want to extend// this to create your own PIDs (don't forget to contribute them here!)new OBD.PIDS.PID;
Used in TypeScript environments to apply typing to poll "data" events and Promise results.
'use strict';var OBD = ;var getConnector = ;var connect =;OBD;
- Ensure definition files are included in published code
- Rewrite using TypeScript and Classes (inner conflict regarding Classes)
- Simplify getting and creating ECUPollers and PIDS
- Upadted documentation and example
