9th Conference on Diagnostics in Mechatronic Vehicle Systems (2015)
New Methods for Testing and Diagnostics in Vehicle E/E-Systems
May 19th and 20th, 2015 in Dresden
The diagnostics in modern e/e-architectures and functional landscapes of vehicles is confronted with a paradigm shift. A variety of challenges occur in the area of cross-product functionalities of the diagnostics technologies due to the transition of a diagnostical treatment of the vehicle as a part of a functional environment in contrast to the treatment as independent entity.
The manufacturers are confronted with elements of a functionality belonging to different product cycles (e.g. smartphones, infrastructure, and vehicle life cycles). Additionally, the extent and complexity of those functionalities drive the testing and diagnostics to new dimensions. To diagnose these overlapping systems, new technologies are needed, which are partly already in use in other industries and which probably can be applicated here.
A key technology is the aggregation and evaluation of the BigData of the interconnected data sources to SmartData. In combination with new remote diagnostics approaches, end-to-end diagnostics methods for domain crossing systems, new standardizations like OTX, ODX, WWH-OBD, knowledge-based diagnosis procedures, and new fault detections mechanisms in the control units, this technology will shape the future of vehicle diagnostics.
In this context, the most recent development results and research reports as well as practical experiences were presented and discussed at the 9th conference on vehicle diagnostics.
Industry representatives were able to present their new solutions and products of the referred topics at the exhibition accompanying the conference.
Key topics of the conference in 2015:
- Remote diagnostics
- Future testing methods
- Diagnostics development
- New technologies and methods
