Arduino OBD-II Adapter Library & Sketches

(C)2012-2018 Freematics.com

OBD-II Adapter for Arduino is a product that works as a vehicle OBD-II data bridge for Arduino (literally all embedded platforms) with open-source Arduino library provided. Besides providing easy-to-use OBD-II data access, it also integrates 9-DOF motion sensor and voltmeter for measuring vehicle battery power. The adapter draws power from OBD-II port and convert it to 5V for powering attached device.

About the library

Most commonly use PIDs are defined in OBD library as followings.


PID_RPM – Engine RPM (rpm)
PID_ENGINE_LOAD – Calculated engine load (%)
PID_COOLANT_TEMP – Engine coolant temperature (°C)
PID_ENGINE_LOAD – Calculated Engine load (%)
PID_ABSOLUTE_ENGINE_LOAD – Absolute Engine load (%)
PID_TIMING_ADVANCE – Ignition timing advance (°)
PID_ENGINE_OIL_TEMP – Engine oil temperature (°C)
PID_ENGINE_TORQUE_PERCENTAGE – Engine torque percentage (%)
PID_ENGINE_REF_TORQUE – Engine reference torque (Nm)


PID_INTAKE_TEMP – Intake temperature (°C)
PID_INTAKE_PRESSURE – Intake manifold absolute pressure (kPa)
PID_MAF_FLOW – MAF flow pressure (grams/s)
PID_BAROMETRIC – Barometric pressure (kPa)


PID_SPEED – Vehicle speed (km/h)
PID_RUNTIME – Engine running time (second)
PID_DISTANCE – Vehicle running distance (km)


PID_THROTTLE – Throttle position (%)
PID_AMBIENT_TEMP – Ambient temperature (°C)

Electric Systems

PID_CONTROL_MODULE_VOLTAGE – vehicle control module voltage (V)
PID_HYBRID_BATTERY_PERCENTAGE – Hybrid battery pack remaining life (%)

Additional defines can be added to access other OBD-II PIDs.
