California BAR

Forward Thinking Systems and the California BAR program collect data related to diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and smog-specific sensor information using a vehicle’s On-Board Diagnostics (OBD-II) port. FTS processes and stores the data so that the California BAR can securely pull information to evaluate the vehicles remotely
