On-board diagnosis of engine and transmission systems has been mandated by government regulation for light and medium vehicles since the 1996 model year. The regulations specify many of the detailed features that on-board diagnostics must exhibit. In addition, the penalties for not meeting the requirements or providing in-field remedies can be very expensive. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of how and why OBD systems function and the technical features that a diagnostic should have in order to ensure compliant and successful implementation.
Fundamental design objectives and features needed to achieve those objectives for generic on-board diagnostics will be covered. The course will also include a review of the California Air Resources OBD II regulation, providing students with a firm foundation for reading and understanding the requirements, including the in-use rate portion of the regulations and how to properly calculate and output the required rate information. Relationships between the regulation and various SAE and ISO recommended practices will be reviewed. The course will also explore the relationship of the OBD system with the underlying control system.
Note that because of proprietary considerations, this class does not provide details of algorithm design, algorithm performance, or algorithm application. The class will cover general OBD algorithm designs and the features required to promote sound OBD system design.
John Van Gilder is currently a Technical Fellow, OBD II Development, in the General Motors Propulsion System Embedded Controls where he is responsible for implementing statistical techniques in OBD design, model based on-board diagnostic design, development of OBD requirements for new powertrain systems, and in-use assessment of OBD systems. Prior to that, Mr. Van Gilder was a Product Assurance Engineer at Delphi where he focused on improving design and manufacturing process reliability, including implementation of quality tools such as design of experiments, quality function deployment, statistical process control, etc. for spark plugs and exhaust oxygen sensors. Mr. Van Gilder was also a Commissioned Officer in the United States Navy working in materials research and development. He has organized and presented at numerous SAE OBD and Powertrain Controls technical meetings. Mr. Van Gilder has a B.S.E. in Engineering Physics from the University of Michigan, a M.S. E. in Nuclear Engineering from the Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory and a M.S.E. in Reliability Engineering from Kettering University and is a Professional Engineer in the state of Michigan.
