This paper presents an overview of diagnostic needs and methodologies in the automotive field. The field of automotive engineering has seen an explosion in the presence of electronic components and systems on-board vehicles since the 1970s. This growth was initially motivated by the introduction of emissions regulations that led to the widespread application of electronic engine controls. A secondary but important consequence of these developments was the adoption of on-board diagnostics regulations aimed at insiring that emission control systems remained functional for a prescribed period of time (or vehicle mileage). In addition, the presence of micro-controllers on-board the vehicle led to a proliferation of functions implemented through electronic systems and related software, related to safety and customer convenience, creating the need for more sophisticated on-board diagnostics. Today, a significant percentage of the software code in an automobile is devoted to diagnostic functions. This paper presents an overview of diagnostic needs and requirements in the automotive industry, illustrates some of the challenges that are associated with satisfying these requirements and proposes some future directions, in particular with respect to prognostics.
