Today, I will present Xamarin Forms (XF) mobile application (iOS and Android) which talks to the vehicle. I will present demo app which reads vehicle speed, engine revolutions per minute-RPM and some other data, such as engine temperature. For that I will use: Xamarin Forms as mobile development framework, On-board diagnostics – ODB2 as car […]
