Seminar: Acquiring and Analyzing Data from Sensors and In-Vehicle Networks

SAE International is offering a seminar titled: Acquiring and Analyzing Data from Sensors and In-Vehicle Networks. The SAE seminar will review the traditional approach of acquiring data directly from sensors and cover the newer approach of obtaining data from the in-vehicle network for automotive, heavy duty, off-road, and marine applications. The event will take place November 6-7, 2013 (8:30 am – 4:30 pm) in Troy, Michigan.

SAE Seminar Objectives

  • Explain what it takes to acquire data from both in-vehicle networks and sensors
  • Compare and contrast acquiring data from both in-vehicle networks and directly from sensors
  • Understand OBD-II, the CAN protocol and other common vehicle protocols
  • Identify an unknown OBD-II network protocol
  • Define the four database types that relate in-vehicle network messages to scaled engineering parameters
  • Review vehicle messages and convert the messages to scaled engineering parameters using various automotive and heavy duty protocols and message types
  • Demonstrate how sample rate has a major effect on your data beyond the obvious and show how to select the optimum sample rate
  • List the four domains that are available to present your data to enhance understanding of the data
  • Avoid common pitfalls of acquiring and analyzing good data
  • Choose the best analysis techniques to better understand and present test data
  • Compare benefits of acquiring data with a PC vs. a stand-alone data logger (without a PC in the vehicle)

Seminar topics include complications of taking data from the in-vehicle network and how to overcome them, current trends and applications, wireless data acquisition (Wi-Fi and cellular), GPS, relevant technical standards, and how to simultaneously acquire network data with direct sensor measurements. The seminar will also cover PC-based and logger data acquisition.

The seminar will be led by HEM Data Corp.
