Beyond OBDII – Small, Dedicated, Aftermarket Onboard Computers

Imagine pulling into your garage, and when your new onboard aftermarket computer is triggered by proximity to a WiFi node in your garage, the data from your drive [note upon re-read: not computer hard drive, but rather your “outing” in your Volvo] is sent to your home Mac or PC, and all parameters for the drive are processed into a neat report that may let you know before a code is set that your thermostat is likely getting a little long in the tooth. The report is emailed to your email account, and arrives at your phone (and your 14-year-old’s phone, because s/he is next in line to your Volvo and wants to ensure you’re treating it right) before you turn it off.
