Diagnostic Tool Concepts for ISO11783 (ISOBUS) 2004-01-2683
The ISO11783 (ISOBUS) standard for communication between tractors and farming implements provides significant opportunities to improve the service process for agricultural equipment. Existing approaches to diagnostics in the transportation industry include an array of different technologies. These existing technologies can be combined in new ways in the ISOBUS environment to provide new value. Of particular interest is a data-driven diagnostic test system that ensures implements produced by different manufacturers provide a consistent and compatible interface to generic diagnostic test systems. By sharing data and software components, such a system can produce significant gains in quality, efficiency and interoperability.
