Systematic Field Data Explorer: Smart use of large volumes of vehicle data
Vehicle recalls can quickly cost millions, and often result in compensation claims and damage to a company’s image. With the Systematic Field Data Explorer, engineers can test and improve parts and components at the development stage.
The Systematic Field Data Explorer can process data generated by any vehicle make and model. First, your data is securely submitted to a central data center, where it is then decrypted, decoded, and stored in an organized and data-compliant format. You can use this solution to access your data in near real time via an online dashboard and visualize them clearly using your standard and user-defined dashboards. This data provides a basis for optimizing systems, components, and functions as well as developing new services and solutions.
Step by step: data processing
Access your data quickly and simply thanks to the cloud-based solution from Bosch Software Innovations.
1. Data transmission
We will work with you closely to coordinate the transmission of data from vehicles or servers as per “Extended vehicle” (ExVe) standards issued by ISO. Data is transmitted over various channels that include direct connectivity, offline data packages, encrypted channels, and raw data storage. We support your IT experts and ensure that it is easy to transmit data.
2. Data decoding
A customized data processor must first decode the binary vehicle data to render it readable. In this regard, our solution supports specification standards for automotive data such as ODX, Fibex, and dbc.
3. Data quality assurance
The data is analyzed as per technical criteria to ensure that no invalid data interferes with the analysis. Our solution eliminates any duplicate, incomplete, inconsistent, or corrupt data to ensure high-quality data.
4. Normalization and enhancement of data
In the next step, different sets of data are harmonized to facilitate use of the data. To this end, various data sources are merged and uniform structures are set up.
5. Data storage
We offer a highly secure, cloud-based infrastructure that stores data. We also help you transfer the data to your own infrastructure. This lays the foundation for performance analyses.
Step by step: data analysis
Bosch automotive experts can help you analyze and interpret your data. This allows you to improve your products, or implement a completely new business model.
1. Data query and export
A graphical user interface (GUI) provides an overview of your data. And the filtering capability of our REST API allows you to search for specific data. In addition, data can be exported in different formats, including JSON and CSV. Our solution also features interfaces to popular third-party tools such as Matlab, Excel, and Tableau.
2. Data visualization and reporting
The Systematic Field Data Explorer can visualize your data by means of predefined dashboards and dashboards that users can define themselves. And reports can be created in various formats, including pdf.
3. Rules-based data analysis
The Systematic Field Data Explorer analyzes your data as per technical criteria. We provide rules-based outlier detection that notify you via email of any irregularities so that you always know the latest status on your data.
Move_UK: See the Systematic Field Data Explorer in action
MOVE_UK project, Jaguar Land Rover, Bosch Driver Assistance, and
additional partners* have set their sights on the significant barriers to automated driving. This project has been conceived to accelerate the introduction of automated technologies as well as improve on and cut the costs of developing them. Technologies are tested on a vehicle fleet under real-world driving conditions in the Royal Borough of Greenwich (London, UK), generating large volumes of data that can be used to advance and optimize functions and algorithms.
Using Bosch Software Innovations’ Systematic Field Data Explorer, data is accepted, stored, and processed before being made available for analysis via an online dashboard. It is hoped that this data will also provide the project partners with information on the impact of driverless technologies on offers and services in cities.
