The goal of the Perl OBD-II Logger project is to create a flexible and efficient application that can capture and log OBD-II Mode 0x01 PID data from an automotive scantool.
It is designed with accurate and efficient PID data logging in mind, and provides NO support for reading or resetting diagnostic trouble codes. By default, the output log file contains time-stamped PID values in a simple Comma Separated Values (CSV) format that can be readily imported into popular data analysis or spreadsheet applications. (Output to an SQLite3 database file is also available).
It is written in Perl, so it runs in any computing environment with a working Perl interpreter. The program supports scantools that are based on the ELM Electronics ELM327 or OBD Solutions STN1110 programmed microcontrollers. It has been tested with scantools using legacy RS-232 serial, serial over USB, and Bluetooth hardware interfaces.
Perl OBD-II Logger even runs on the popular Raspberry Pi computer!
- Runs in any environment with a working Perl interpreter
- Sampling periods/rates can be customized for each PID
- Output in CSV format, or as an SQLite3 database file
- Includes SYSV init scripts for running on the Raspberry Pi in "headless" mode
