Present paper aims to present the steps of developing a prototype used for the display of severalfunctional parameters which does not normally appear on the dashboard of an automobile. Data is collectedfrom the vehicle CAN bus, follow-up processed with a MCP2515 microcontroller and a ATMEGA328P andfinally displayed on a color touchscreen. The prototype is a Plug&Play device, which can easily be connectedto the vehicle’s OBD2 socket, from where the data is collected. The parameters are shown in an interactivemanner, by displaying one or multiple parameters at a time, on a single page.
