OBD app development for vehicle test and diagnostics

Information and communication in and with the vehicle are central elements of automotive development. At Softing Automotive, we develop tailor-made applications for mobile end devices in the business-to-business field. In doing so, we specialize on the important platforms iOS and Android.

We develop solutions for mobile end devices along the entire process chain. Based on our decades of experience in integrating vehicles and other interfaces, we offer that decisive competitive edge in the implementation and realization of challenging projects.

With the OBD app from Softing, your Apple iPhone becomes an OBD diagnostic device. Your smartphone connects with the vehicle using the OBD-2 WLAN adapter “HSC VCI”. You can use the OBD app to read out the fault memory as well as to determine measured values and ECU information. Communication data from running operations can be saved and analyzed offline.
