4 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS Overview Mercedes-Benz C-Class and E-Class passenger cars will be produced in China beginning from the year of 2005 The following key issues occur for the production line set-up in China regarding the diagnosis system: To build up the know-how Configure and deploy the environment Adapt and test the applications Stable, robust routine operation, and immediate technical service should be strictly guaranteed DaimlerChrysler SIM Tech. should be closely involved in these tasks 1 Overview 2345

6 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS The IS Tester In passenger car production, the IS tester diagnostic system is used There are four key tasks for testing operations using the IS tester: Test whether the ECU is functional (self-diagnosis) Test whether all of the sensors and final control elements are functional and the wiring has been done properly (functional test) Test whether the correct ECU has been installed in the vehicle Load coding data to customize the ECU to the vehicle The diagnosis system: Hardware industrial PC connected to the diagnostic jack communication hardware device (coupling card), printer Software NISP (New IS Tester Program) 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

7 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS Where Testing is Done Trim Line (Assembly) The station where the ECUs are typically coded; partial testing Chassis (Assembly) Sensors and final control elements are tested Finishing (Assembly) Extras (e.g. anti-theft protection system) are tested Roller Tester The vehicle needs to be driven (dynamic tests) Engine Check Rework Special Tests 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

8 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS Testing Operations Adaptation The vehicle needs to be unambiguously identified for the testing system. The production number is transferred to the testing system over a PC-SPC coupling ECU Test All the ECUs are put into diagnostic mode Based on the vehicle data set, the system checks whether the right ECUs have been installed in the correct places. Functional Test Made up of all the steps where communication with the ECU in diagnostic mode is effected in order to check that it is operating trouble-free In some cases, test personnel are required to perform actions that should be detected by the ECU. 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

9 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS Testing Operations (ctd.) Coding Many ECUs are codable, i.e. the vehicle is adapted to the ECU. The coding information is either read out of the ECU-specific coding files or gathered during the testing operations on the basis of the vehicle data record. Documentation A test label is output for documentation of the testing operations. The label lists all the ECUs tested, together with the part IDs, software releases, and errors returned. The label is stuck onto the assembly documents, which are archived. At the same time, the label data and other result data are transferred to a central archive for statistical evaluation of the tests performed. 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

10 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS NISP – Components Making up the Application 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

11 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS NISP – Components Making up the Application Core system, test program, compiler and interpreter The NISP core system (PAH) executes the test program, and it is controlled by the control table. The control table contains a number of basic functions (handler functions) and control constructs (loops, assignments, conditional branches). The test program is created in a general language PAS (test application language) and then converted into the binary format needed by the test program compiler (PAC). Communications processors are required for the communication with the ECUs. The devices used are the CAESAR communications modules. 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

12 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS NISP – Components Making up the Application Test application generator A graphical tool – the test application generator PAG – is also provided It allows graphical objects to be combined to create a test program. This approach is quick and easy and does not necessitate expertise in the programming language. The tool is facilitating a clear overview of the overall scope of operations and aims preventing syntactic programming errors, allowing testing personnel with no programming know-how to create a test program. It does not provide assistance in placing the individual testing sequences in the correct logical order. Therefore, a great deal of experience is the key factor in designing a good test program, either by using the graphical tool, either creating by hand. 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

13 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS NISP – Components Making up the Application Vehicle and ECU description data The ECU description data – DIOGENES data (or SET files) – sets out the byte strings necessary for access to the related ECU information and how the responses are to be interpreted. The vehicle data is used to detect the vehicle-specific parts to be tested and for generation of the vehicle-dependent coding information necessary for most of the ECUs. IS Tester Server UNIX system supported by a database; gathers all the result data and interprets it. The primary source of vehicle data for the test system. 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

14 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS The NISP Environment 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

15 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS NISP – Overview of Technical Features Graphical creation tool and problem-oriented standard language for testing operations. Enables parallel communication with several ECUs. Multiplatform support for the intermediate code (DOS, Windows, UNIX). Combination of ECU testing (serial) with testing of the electrical system (consumer test, ECOS). Several testing operations can be run separately with manual or automatic selection. Multilanguage capability through deployment of text files for output texts with referencing done by assigning numbers. GUI with specific add-ons (operation via remote control). Network integration; remote maintenance. Generation of quality and/or statistical data. Configurable printer functions (label printout). Auto-recognition of ECU variants. Rework functions (dynamic menus as per the relevant error state). Emission-related test jobs required for issuance of official certificates may be recorded if desired. 32-bit DOS application in protected mode; cooperative multitasking (RT Kernel) 2 ECU diagnosis 1543

18 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS Possible Tasks for Us Multilanguage support Although multi-language capability is offered by NISP through the deployment of text files for output texts with referencing, there is no Chinese version available up till now. The development of Chinese add-ons (output texts, specific graphical user interface, technical documentation) is necessary for the local production both for the line diagnoses and the repair services in the workshop. 3 Possible Tasks for Us 5421 DaimlerChrysler SIM Technology Co. Ltd. should be closely involved in the following tasks and services for reasons of localization and in-house knowledge to bridge the possible problems that may be encountered:

19 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS Possible Tasks for Us 3 Possible Tasks for Us 5421 Setup, modification and adaptation There are some possible modification expected due to the plant relocation (to be found out during the road test). These modifications will affect the diagnosis system as well, so, the task of adaptation and configuration of hardware/software will have to be handled. Training Even though the sequence of operations is predefined, line staff is responsible for supervising testing. And, in some cases, testing is interactive: the test program requests testing personnel to perform specific action. Therefore testing personnel have to undergo a thorough training to be able to perform: routine operations using the IS Tester, documentation, adaptation or alteration of test sequences.

20 Support for Diagnosis in Production Automotive ELECTRONICS Possible Tasks for Us 3 Possible Tasks for Us 5421 Maintenance and technical services Engineers from DaimlerChrysler SIM Tech. could provide after-setup technical services and monitoring to guarantee a continuous availability of the overall diagnosis system. Tasks include: adaptation or redefinition of test sequences on necessity, monitoring and supervising the diagnosis, maintaining and supervising the IS Tester server, reporting and communicating with DaimlerChrysler engineers for trouble- shooting.
