Diagnosis Concept for Future Vehicle Electronic Systems 2004-21-0010
As automotive electronic control systems continue to increase in usage and complexity, the challenges for developing automotive diagnostics also increase. Reduced development cycle times, the increased significance of diagnostics for safety critical systems, and the integration of vehicle systems across multiple control systems all add to the tasks of developing diagnostics for the automobiles of today and tomorrow.
Addressing automotive diagnostics now requires the Tier 1 supplier to utilize a formal diagnostic development methodology. There are also opportunities for Tier 1 suppliers to add value by developing vehicle-level supervisory diagnostic strategies, in addition to subsystem and system-level diagnostic strategies. There is also a prospect to provide strategies and tools to enhance service at the vehicle level.
This paper proposes an approach for Tier 1 suppliers to address diagnostic and service issues at the component, system, and vehicle level. The approach includes: a formal diagnostic development methodology; and new subsystem, system and vehicle level diagnostic strategies.
