Global Vehicle Tracking and Computerized Vehicle Diagnostics: A Conceptual Discussion of a Future Integration 922498

The ability to globally track vehicle position via satellite is a reality. So is the ability to diagnose heavy-duty diesel powertrains and their peripheral support components. However, the integration of these two accepted methods for vehicular operation and maintenance have yet to be merged together; specifically the use of computerized vehicle diagnostics and failure analysis through artificial intelligence as a performance analyzer. As a result of these two emerging technologies, vehicle powertrain diagnostics may soon be conducted through satellite communications between the disabled vehicle and the office of origin for the disabled vehicle. At the time of this publication a system of this nature has not been developed. This paper will discuss the nature of such a concept as well as a description of each of the major software components, their history, operation and how they may be integrated.
