Vehicles compliant with BS4 or Euro4 emission standards have multiple sophisticated Engine Control Units (ECUs) exchanging data with each other over the vehicle's internal CAN bus. This gives an opportunity to safely tap into the data exchanges over the CAN bus via the OBD port without interfering with the regular operations of the vehicle. Different types of data can be captured to analyze the vehicle's current condition, usage profile, abuse patterns, fault codes, driving patterns, accident scenarios and various other use cases. Know more on how Intellicar can solve your real world problems with its proprietary reverse engineering, data extraction & interpretation techniques using OBD & CAN data.
Here is a digital replica of the instrument cluster of a common passenger car based on an internal combustion engine. Each of the elements presented here emphasize the connection between the physical model or indication to its corresponding virtual counterpart. These connections are established by generating real-time data from our sensors and mapping them to their appropriate physical manifestation. For example, the information presented on the real-time Digital Twin widget here is a superset of what drivers would have at their disposal. In other words, this is exactly the current status of the vehicle or the asset. This intuitive visualization of the information allows the operations manager to have quick snapshot of the assets current status and take necessary actions if required.
This is the Mobile App version of the Digital Twin adapting the view to make it consumption friendly on a small screen. Intellicar deeply understands the value of the information availability and its ubiquitousness and hence provides information accessibility from various end points. This demonstration is a showcase of the design, representation and visualization capabilities of the Intellicar team and is also a testament to their unique approach of looking at things from different perspectives.
What you are seeing here is the historical snapshot of the asset's status, condition and behaviour - in this case, of a vehicle. To detail it further, here you have information with respect to where the vehicle travelled, when, when and how much refuel was done, when was the AC used, how did the engine temperature oscillate giving an indication of the coolan and engine oil levels and many other aspects of the asset's usage in a given time interval. The historical view allows you to analyze data over a period of time and identify patterns of usage, misuse, abuse and establish a baseline of standard acceptable behaviour and operating range. With this representation of information in hand, the operations manager has the power to identify and pair the cause and effect relations and establish standard operating procedures to head off problems before they even occur thereby bringing in unprecedented visibility to improve efficiencies and reduce downtime.
If not done correctly, the amount of information you can extract from the vehicle can overwhelm your business operations resulting in information overload defeating the primary purpose of this solution. From all the information that is gathered from OBD & CAN data, Intellicar provides you with concise, to the point, summarized and simple reports which enable your operations and customer support teams to make speedy inferences about the asset usage and provide quick resolutions with rapid turnaround times.
