Tesla Hacking – A Technical Spotlight

In the past, the OBD-II port has been used as a diagnostic tool to ensure regulatory compliance around carbon emissions. Today, OBD-II ports are more relevant for their usage with telematic solutions, especially for fleet management as they are typically the easiest place to access the vehicle CAN bus. As fleets explore switching from combustion to electric vehicles, they’re discovering that many of their telematics devices aren’t compatible with new EVs. We had to find another way to get at that information.
