Model-based Tools for the Automotive Industry - Extended Abstract
Working Papers of the ECAI-98Workshop W5 on Model-based Systems and Qualitative Reasoning, Brighton, UK, 1998.
INDIA (Intelligent Diagnosis for Industrial Applications) is a project funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). It was launched in 1995 for a period of 4 years and aims at a substantial contribution to the industrial application of knowledge-based - in particular: model-based - diagnosis of technical devices. To this end we want to improve the possibilities to tailor a diagnostic system to the demands of a certain application (e. g. with respect to safety, environmental impact, variety, integration into development and runtime environment).
The extended abstract describes main objectives of INDIA, the INDIA consortium, and the three application domains. For the later, we focus on the automotive domain and three applications developed within INDIA: the diagnostic autoring tool GENESIS, a model-based FMEA generator and a tool for off-board diagnosis.
