Automated Analysis of Automotive Data 2005-01-1437
Continued advancement of vehicle features creates complexity that restricts service technicians’ ability to understand how the vehicles are meant to behave and how to diagnose problems. Handheld diagnostic tools are great for retrieving snapshots of data but can not provide the necessary systematic overview to analyze the next generation of problems brought on by these complexities. New tools are needed to oversee vehicle systems operations, to automate data capture and analysis, and to improve the diagnostic process. This paper addresses the requirements for this next generation of diagnostic tools and the framework needed to support them.
