On-Board Unit

On-board unit

The On-board Unit (OBU) sends speed and location information through a cellular data connection and receives messages back when the vehicle is approaching an area where caution is warranted.

Utilizing a Raspberry Pi 3 and 7" touch screen, the OBU runs the GENIVI GDP operating system in conjunction with a custom user interface created for the pilot. Speed, location and communications are provided by a GENIVI-developed "v2x" board that is connected to the vehicle's OBD2 port as well as a GPS antenna.
