In this paper, the authors combine the concepts of on board diagnostics and connected cars such that the real-time diagnostic values are transmitted to remote server through internet access provided by an android phone. A hardware unit interfaces the vehicle's OBD system with the Android phone using Bluetooth module. The cellular internet connection which is in-built in the phone enables transmission of this data. This data can be further used to monitor the vital electromechanical parameters of the vehicle.
