Since most standard OBD or OBDII vehicles do not make the odometer reading available or supply the odometer value in tenths, almost all telematics or connected car devices must calculate mileage from OBDII speed. This calculation results in considerable error in many readings such as speed, acceleration and mileage.
In order to demonstrate the ability of MotorVibes™ accurate mileage calculation we pitted Automatic’s OBDII device mileage against the MotorVibes ™ AccuMileage™ OBDII device. A brand new 2016 Automatic device was purchased and installed according to instructions on a Nissan Frontier. We compared the device results with the vehicles trip computer.
Automatic mileage – 54 miles
Actual vehicle mileage – 55 miles
Error = 1 Mile / 55 Miles = 1.8%
Next, a MotorVibes™ device was installed on the same vehicle.
Results – MotorVibes™
MotorVibes™ Mileage – 105.97 Miles
Actual vehicle mileage -106.2 miles
Error = 0.23 miles / 106.2 miles = 0.2 %
This demonstrates the ability of MotorVibes™ patent pending technology to correct traditional error found in most telematics devices. While not all vehicles will see this high degree of accuracy, overall accuracy is greatly improved using MotorVibes™ technology.

When choosing technical consultants, companies often only focus on a long list of technical skills. For electronic engineers that typically includes hardware design, software design, embedded software, programming, circuit design, microcontrollers, etc.
Many engineers underestimate the importance of interpersonal communications. Companies often fail to evaluate communication skills when engaging a product development firm. Designing and troubleshooting electronic products and embedded software is much more efficient when the engineers are professional, outgoing, and can explain problems and technologies. Here our engineers are running a trade show booth for products they designed.
This was a new technology introduction and the end result of the show was a national account contract and several more national account contacts as a result of our engineers’ ability to present the technology.
The project was to debug, troubleshoot and redesign portions of the control and data acquisition components of a motorcycle dynamometer. The project was quite challenging due to the high rate of speed and the short time of the drive cycle. As delivered the system was electrically noisy. The video shows a lug down test run.
