Diagnostics in Electric Autonomous Vehicle System Development Lifecycle

Electric autonomous vehicles (EAVs) have emerged as a promising alternative to traditional transport with a goal of increasing mobility and sustainability. However, ensuring their reliable performance and road durability poses new challenges, compared to the traditional solutions. This is a consequence of the incomplete revolution of diagnostics for EAVs propulsion-related systems, such as electromotor drivetrain, battery, battery management system, power electronics, etc. The diagnostic system plays a crucial role in accumulating knowledge, which can accelerate development of EAVs and enhance their reliability.

Electric vehicles diagnostic AI applications

To ensure the reliability, proper functioning, and maintenance of Electric Vehicles (EVs), a robust and efficient diagnostic system is essential. AI-based techniques in diagnostics offer a promising solution for fulfilling the needs of EVs. Applications of machine learning (ML) dealing with data-based models, fuzzy logic incorporating the expert knowledge, and their combinations can revolutionize the field with predictive diagnostics, maintenance, and monitoring. By predicting potential future system faults, misbehaviour or need for maintenance, this approach can make electric mobility more accessible and sustainable.

Development of remote monitoring vehicle systems

During the operation of the autonomous vehicles, the absence of human driver raised critical future issues. For example, the driver can react to unknown in vehicle vibrations, sound, smell, dynamics etc. Together with that, problems with propulsion-related systems cannot simply be displayed with the check engine light. With one of the main monitoring systems out of the loop (human driver), the need for the safe and reliable remote monitoring and diagnostic system is raised. Coupling these systems with V2X represents great challenges.
