Software tool analyses vehicle performance remotely

June 13, 2016 // By CHRISTOPH HAMMERSCHMIDT
The software EB cadian from Elektrobit enables carmakers to remotely monitor and analyse the performance of accordingly equipped vehicles. The highly customizable, cloud-based tool helps car developers to reduce maintenance costs and optimize the value chain.

Remote analytics solutions are particularly effective in the continuous evolution of the fleet. In the web-frontend of EB cadian, carmakers can create specific, on-demand surveys without the need for permanent data transfer, and collect a wide variety of usage and performance data from sources like driver assistance components, battery life, emissions and infotainment systems. Surveys are highly customizable, enabling carmakers to focus on the data they really need and minimizing the data transfer. In addition, EB cadian allows carmakers to determine a very specific target group for the surveys, for example collecting data only from vehicles with a certain engine type, hardware component or software version.

 

EB cadian stores survey data in a scalable cloud environment that carmakers can tailor to their current needs and fleet size. EB cadian uses a unique algorithm to analyze the data collected, producing information that can help carmakers continuously optimize their vehicles throughout the whole product lifecycle. A better understanding of the vehicle components gives carmakers the information they need to choose the best suppliers for their products. Standardized interfaces ensure that additional applications, either from EB or the carmaker’s own solutions, can be integrated.
