Greg Potter and Bob Gruszczynski - interviewed by Donny Seyfer
Join Greg Potter, Manager Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI) and Bob Gruszczynski - Volkswagen Group of America - OBD Specialist and SAE Contributor for a discussion of Scan Tool Protocols past and future.
What is the future of OBD II? With a little look at how we got here
How will connected cars affect scan tool technology and diagnostics?
What does the 2018 MOU rule mean to diagnostic tools from both an OE and tool maker point of view?
And much more
2:30 pm-3:00 pm - Cyber Security
CyberSecurity is a big buzz word. Your phone or tablet could be an open door for hackers who would like to attack your customers cars while you are working on them. Mohan will give you examples of ways to protect yourself personally and at work from malware.
3:00 pm-3:30 pm - Snack Break
3:30 pm-4:00 pm - V2V Communication
Debra Bezzina interviewed by Bob Redding
Debby Bezzina holds a BS in electrical engineering. Ms. Bezzina has over twenty-nine years of experience in the automotive industry. She served as Visteon’s program manager on two USDOT-funded field operational tests of automotive advanced-safety-systems research (road departure crash warning FOT and integrated vehicle based safety systems FOT). Debby worked at General Motors on vehicle control modules and audio in the Truck Group and Ford Motor Company in the Engine Design Division. She was the senior program manager for the Safety Pilot Model Deployment and at present is the senior program manager for the Ann Arbor Connected Vehicle Test Environment at UMTRI. Concurrently, she is the Pillar 1 lead for the Mobility Transformation Center.
Bob Redding is ASAs Washington DC representative and expert in connected car policy.
Join Debby and Bob as they answer these questions:
How does V2V or V2I work and what are DOTs goals for it?
What is Dedicated Short Range Communication?
Will DSRC be used just for vehicles or are there other uses?
How can DSRC help drivers and when do you see enough critical mass?
What components are likely to be involved to facilitate DSRC
Will vehicle systems like VSC be communicating conditions? Will it just be Lidar, camera or radar inputs that ?
Is this the only type of communication that a vehicle will have or will there be others?
What kind of repairs/maintenance do you see being involved to keep these things working?
4:00 pm-5:30 pm - Sensors
Learn all the ins and outs of Radar, Lidar, Sonar and Camera based sensors. Detailed course description to follow.
5:30 pm-7:00 pm - Reception
Drink ticket and hors doeuvres
7:30 am-8:00 am - Breakfast and Networking
8:00 AM-9:30 AM - VW Driver Assistance Systems
This is a discussion of the past and most recent Volkswagen driver assist systems, providing participants with the principles of the following subjects:
Forward facing radar sensors
Rear facing radar sensors
Forward facing muti-function cameras
Peripheral camera systems
Post Collision Braking System
Communication protocols for driver assist systems
The effects of outside influence on Driver Assist systems
To calibrate – or not to calibrate…
Customer’s concerns vs. laws of physics
The role alignment racks play in driver assistance system calibration
9:30 AM-9:45 AM - Coffee Break
Coffee, Water and Soda
9:45 AM-11:15 AM - Vehicle Design
As vehicles have become more complex, the existing CAN and ISO architecture has become insufficient for future needs in the industry. As a result new vehicle architectures are being rolled out using Ethernet (DoIP) and Flexible Data Rate CAN (FD CAN). Both tools and technicians will be affected by these changes. This discussion will outline some of the ways engineering and field technicians will be impacted as well as describing the basic advantages of the change. Scott is Mahle Service Solutions Chief Engineer who has been involved in the TechPro Scan tool software, GM GDS2 and Ford end of line programming system.
11:30 AM-12:30 PM - Lunch
12:30 pm-2:00 pm - AC Delco/GM class
GM Advanced System engineers are developing an ADAS class for this event. The presentations they have done for us in the past have been very popular. We expect great things again.
