What is an OBD II Plug-In?

OBD or Onboard Diagnostic refers to a vehicle’s self-diagnostic and reporting capability.  For cars manufactured after 2001, an OBD II outlet can be found within 2 feet of the steering wheel.  An OBD II Plug-In device is a data logger that helps draw the vehicle’s information that is needed to measure the driver’s scoring such as vehicle’s RPM, Acceleration, Braking, and Fuel Efficiency calculation. 

Will the OBD II Plug-In damage my car?

The OBD II Plug-In only acts as a data logger and does not have the capability to write/overwrite data stored in the vehicle ECU.  It is built based on the SAE J1989 specifications and draws a minimum amount of current to power the device.  It is switched off once the engine is off, hence it will not drain the vehicle’s battery.

What information do I need to register for this challenge?

You will need to provide your name, membership number, and the number of years of driving experience.

What data is being collected throughout the challenge?

  1. Distance travelled by driver;
  2. Number of trips done by driver;
  3. Driving behaviour derived from the scoring;
  4. Vehicle information needed for scoring;

All aggregated data is for scoring purposes and to provide analysis on driver training provided by AAS Academy Pte Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Automobile Association of Singapore.

How will this challenge improve my driving behaviour?

Using the digital platform Enerfy to record driving trips, a driving pattern is formed based on the individual's driving behaviour. After analysing the trip, in-app tips will be provided to the individual on the areas of improvement for each trips made. Data that is collected will be further analysed by AAS Academy to advise drivers on the type of training the participant should be attending for a more comprehensive driving experience. 

What is the difference between FIA digital platform from other traditional telematics in the market?

Traditional telematics usually record driving trips on a rule based on matrix, and records the number of events on trip based on Harsh Acceleration, Harsh Breaking, and Harsh Cornering. Whilst the FIA's digital platform is also collecting such data, it is more dynamic as it is powered by A.I. and it collects eight parameters of data on a per second basis. The data collected is processed using A.I. to form a participant's driving pattern/behaviour which allows it to send trip analysis back to the app and present in-app tips to improve driving behaviour.

What happens to the OBD II Plug-In after the challenge?

After the end of the competition, subscription to the app will automatically be ceased. Drivers are encouraged to unplug the device from the vehicle and have it sent back to AA.

What happens if I sign up for the challenge but decided not to participate in the end?

As slots for this inaugural event are limited to 100, those who do not wish to take part in the challenge arrange for the device to be returned to AA. You may write to academy@aas.com.sg for further arrangements.

Must all challenge requirements be met?

This challenge is designed to help regular drivers become safer and more eco-friendly. Meaningful data is required in order to fulfill this objective hence all requirements must be fulfilled and pre-heats completed.
