OBD3: Wireless Wonder or Orwell’s Nightmare?
On board diagnostics have come a long way since the easy days and OBD1, but the current standard of OBD2 is almost 25 years old now. It is still user friendly, especially since it became standardized across all makes and models, allowing for affordable consumer-level scan tools to exist. Technology is growing more and more wireless, so there is a good chance that there is interest in making a new on board diagnostics system that can be communicated with wirelessly.
As mentioned in the video above, there is some potential for OBD3 to make problem diagnosis easier, but also a huge potential social risk that could come with it. What do you think will be the outcome?
