Facilitate the safe use of the car itself decoder forget preparedness others

When in late June of this year, a unit of a Junsao drove out parking, remember the car key remote control function has been on the locked car. But when she returned to the car after finishing things, they found a bag in the car were missing, while the locks and body are intact. Local police found after surveying the scene, which is a typical use of car theft in the decoder implementation. The decoder also known as automobile automotive fault diagnostic, and automotive connectors, you can read the electronic information system failures and help repair personnel to quickly and accurately determine fault and condition. Automotive vehicles generally have a remote lock function, the principle is the vehicle when locking and unlocking the car key remote control signals generated password is sent to the receiving device in the car after encryption, passwords, and when this group receiving device matches the door on opens. Criminals is to lock the car owners using the decoder reads the data in the control function, the code signal sent to intercept the remote copy down the owner, the owner of a leave after opened the door, and stole the car belongings.

See above case, you are not a thief now marveling hsiang, pervasive it? Then you would be wrong to carry out the theft, there is no corresponding technical knowledge, it is impossible to do.

With the rapid development of the automotive industry, used in engine control system, electronically controlled automatic transmission, ABS anti-lock braking, SRS airbags, electronic suspension, cruise control and other related electronic control systems on the car are increasingly more, and repair industry as a troubleshooting method also has experience in the diagnosis of human development by the appropriate equipment for diagnosis, especially some of the electronic control system imported luxury cars can only be diagnosed by the equipment, and in many of these among the equipment we use is the most common electronic control system detector, known as the decoder.

Automotive decoder is actually the name of a broad sense, the current market auto decoders common in three ways: The first is the traditional sense of aftermarket tools called automotive fault diagnostic. It is for our cars to provide maintenance to equipment failure code and data, there is no risk of theft of the car; second car decoder chip, also called car keys matching instrument. This machine can be said to be double-edged sword, beneficial to have disadvantages, which in many cases lost car keys flourish, car keys matching to solve the problem, it can be said in this regard Automotive decoder chip is denied. However, such tools once in the hands of criminals, has become the root cause of crime. Now the car chip decoder, easy to operate, leading technology outflow. In the absence of effective management mechanism, in the market economy stimulus, whether producers or sellers mercenary, who makes use of the product audit, resulting in a large number of automotive chip decoder outflow into the hands of social workers. For this car immobilizer chip current situation is almost no preventive measures. If you really want to effectively prevent, motor vehicles must be removed OBD interface; third car decoder is the most harmful to an electronic tool. Is pure criminals stealing cars ready for remote control decoder. It is by receiving the majority of owners of remote control signals to the various functions of the remote copy is equivalent to lock as soon as you press the remote control when the car thief had already got your car remote control. This is why obviously put a good lock, or stolen, and there is no trace of damage. According to research this kind of remote control decoder is very powerful, as long as your remote control signal received either lock or unlock the car signals the signal, you can put all your remote control function to copy. Whether it is to open the door, lock the door or open the trunk. Thus, according to the majority of owners should be alert to this it works within 20 meters when no other suspicious persons can use the remote control to lock the car. If the high traffic areas, try to lock the car with the key.

Initial application of high technology for the convenience of users’ lives, but always had to take advantage of some criminals take advantage. So reminded owners. But also to facilitate their defense of others, be safe to travel.


Breaking car information silos

After the living room, the car is a center for scientific and technological onslaught. Google driverless too far, such a short time is difficult to spread Tesla vehicle make automotive glass screen ideal yet become the fifth floor, the car really intelligent, but also work hard in a normal car.

Several forms of intelligent cars

Car was able to intelligence, that it can and networks, and mobile phones, to connect with other devices, and then load the wealth of Internet information services. It is believed that there are several forms of intelligent car:

1, the ultimate smart: unmanned, cloud scheduling;

2, vehicle smart: smart TV sets corresponding to the car factory will be integrated into the Internet interface, implantation of Internet services, best known than Tesla;

3, OBD (OBD) Intelligence: universal OBD interface means, the car information barriers break the ice indicator vehicle information data becomes available, and even some of the information is written to affect vehicle operation.

4, Car Smart: Smart tire pressure detector (iron generals), smart lock, intelligent navigation systems, intelligent in-car entertainment systems, smart mirrors, air purifiers and other smart cars, removable, assembly, optional.

5-vehicle applications: automotive scene with Internet applications, such as road applications, navigation App, taxi App, car entertainment systems, Baidu CarNet, Apple CarPlay fall into this category.

6, automotive peripheral: intelligent solutions around the car, smart parking, smart garage, intelligent transportation, Uber Car, P2P car so can count, and car-related technology applications.

Intelligent car earlier than intelligent hardware development for many years, there have been a number of levels. But Chinese players than most OBD smart car smart products. January 1, 2007, all Chinese factory vehicles are mandatory installation of OBDII port, this decision has been generally let the car OBD interface. OBD (On-Board Diagnostic System) or “OBD”, also known as onboard diagnostics, it is input and outputs the digital information automobile. This allows the car is no longer a purely mechanical device, but the device always generates information data. The intelligence and information are inseparable, so the real car networking or smart cars will definitely use OBD interface.

OBD Interface breaking car information silos

OBD called the on-board diagnostic system, which initially serve naturally repair technicians, they access through a dedicated device OBD interface and access to diagnostic codes can quickly locate the fault, and even found hidden in advance. Since OBD also become relevant departments to monitor high-emission vehicles interface, it can be used by the relevant regulatory authorities. Now it has become a key exporter of automotive intelligence information.

By using tens of thousands of sensors to monitor the engine, catalytic converter, particulate trap, oxygen sensors, emission control system, fuel system, GER and other parts, OBD interface output MPH, MPG, RPM, oil pressure, water temperature, engine temperature, tire pressure, oil viscosity, fuel-efficiency. You can even get a crack at the bottom of the data: doors windows, lights, brakes, gears, air conditioning, radar, ignition, flame, data speed, fuel consumption, safety belt.

These data become smart OBD input devices, and after treatment will become valuable information, even the formation of the new model. Specifically, 4S shop owners can use it to understand the habits of precise positioning owners to push their services; auto insurance companies can be combined with the acceleration sensor to record the vehicle driving course to become an automobile accident reduction black box; while greater imagination is through OBD smart devices, output data from the car to the user valuable information.

All of these applications are to make use of external devices to obtain data OBD interface. Some screen directly, while others are adapter and then transfer the data to the cloud and mobile phones via Bluetooth, the mobile cellular network. Essentially breaking the car in this information silos, let the car with clouds, cars and mobile phones, cars and more closely connected users.
