Automated and Flexible Testing for OBD II and EOBD
ETAS extends OCT software for emission-specific diagnostic tests

As mandated by the U.S. EPA Office of Transportation and Air Quality, new car registrations in the United States require proof of OBD conformity as per SAE J1699/3. This is accomplished by means of dedicated, open-source certification software. However, this software is unsuitable for early or automated testing because it does not provide options for user intervention. In addition, it is not possible to use the software for testing and validation of the requirements resulting from EOBD. The software tool OCT4.0 (OBD/EOBD Conformance Test) by ETAS makes it possible for the first time to perform flexible, automated tests for both OBD and EOBD as well as for customer-specific applications. The tests can be performed in the lab or in production vehicles.
