Trythall, S., "New Technology to Speed Vehicle Electrical System Fault Rectification," SAE Technical Paper 2015-01-0205, 2015, doi:10.4271/2015-01-0205.
Rapid resolution of electrical faults reduces costs, enhances brand image and maximizes vehicle availability. Although diagnostic systems continue to improve, service technicians frequently have to consult schematics, location views and other engineering resources to fix a problem. But this data can be hard to find, hard to understand, and out of date or wrong. This session presents new technology to leverage design data directly into the service domain. The technician is presented only with relevant vehicle-specific data, is able to navigate dynamically through electrical schematics, and can seamlessly link with other resources such as 3D models and repair procedures.
