On-board diagnostics, required by governmental regulations, provide a means for reducing harmful pollutants into the environment. Since being mandated in 1996, the regulations have continued to evolve and require engineers to design systems that meet strict guidelines. This one day seminar is designed to provide an overview of the fundamental design objectives and the features needed to achieve those objectives for generic on-board diagnostics. The basic structure of an on-board diagnostic will be described along with the system definitions needed for successful implementation.
Please 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.
Individuals desiring a more in-depth look at On-Board Diagnostics should consider attending SAE seminar ID# C0707 Designing On-Board Diagnostics for Light and Medium Duty Emissions Control Systems.
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.
