    Nowadays almost every vehicle has OBD (On Board Diagnostics) interface. It is most commonly used for car maintenance. We researched Bluetooth adapter usage (read data like RPM or vehicle speed) and security of OBD itself. We tried to read standard OBD data (vehicle speed, RPM...) using mobile app. We researched the adapter stability, as well as OBD’s. There were some minor issues with adapter (dropping connection). We managed to get the data we mentioned before. On the contrary OBD is known to have several (possibly deadly) vulnerabilities, for example someone being able to accelerate or apply brakes remotely.
