Scandroid is an implementation of a collection of various ISO/SAE
standards that allows an android powered device to connect a vehicle
and perform a variety of operations including each of the diagnostic
test modes specified by SAE J1979. The underlying API is written in
pure Java and is provided to users via an Android GUI wrapper, although

Future endeavors (at this point) are expected to be:
- Providing various communication interfaces (physical) such as WiFi
and USB in addition to the existing bluetooth interface.
- Providing various open source hardware setups such as arduino
and raspberry pi RS232 to OBDII interpreters
- Providing a SMS mode for remote diagnostic sessions with Scandroid
compatible vehicles from all around the world.
- To obtain various manufacturer specific information, specifications,
procedures, and other functionality and make it available for the
public for free.
This project is still in early development, so stay tuned for updates.
