Diagnosis and Electronic Architectures for Commercial Vehicles - Concepts and Development 2000-01-3158
The objective of this paper is to present the update procedures and the future tendencies for the diagnosis projects in commercial vehicles, specially buses and trucks. The constant increase in the number of components and electronic systems in commercial vehicles demands that the subject “Diagnosis” be treated and previously defined, while the vehicle is in the project phase. The final goal of this thought is to provide to the vehicle the best possible acting of all the electronics systems placed in vehicle, and, as a consequence, the best running of the On-Board and Off-Board diagnosis systems which should assist the customer needs directly. The tendency is to project the vehicles of the same brand in the same conceptual line facilitating the assembly work in production line and the after sales support.
