OTA Deep Logger

Precisely collect the right in-vehicle data from every ECU using customizable events, rules and filters to enable advanced diagnostics and new connected services.

Log Meaningful Data When it Matters

Vehicle data holds great promise for OEMs to create new revenue paths and expand the potential of connected vehicle capabilities - from Usage-Based Insurance (UBI), real time analytics, data marketplaces/monetization and beyond.

However, the sheer volume and velocity of data produced in modern vehicles presents challenges in abstracting the right data at the right time. Sibros’ OTA Data Logging solution collects and transmits all data formats from every ECU based on customizable rules, triggers and filters for advanced analysis. This smart and selective logging approach filters out irrelevant vehicle data to give OEMs truly actionable insights to improve future product design and unlock a broad range of new and innovative connected vehicle services.

OTA Data Logger Solution Components

Cloud: Datascope

Sibros Datascope provides a powerful automotive-first analytical system to help our customers leverage live streamed vehicle or fleet-level data insights. Easily browse software rollout status to data analysis on deployment or vehicle operations and more, including:

  • Fleet monitoring: visualize and transform data from the fleet in real time and get notified right away for anything that needs attention
  • ML and Data analysis: build customized pipelines to analyze and make intelligent use of the logged data
  • Smart dashboards: fully customized dashboards that visualize data based on vehicle tags, models, configurations and trim packages
  • Secure channel: end-to-end communication channel is fully secured with TLS and every device is authenticated / authorized when connecting to the cloud
  • Live configuration: with a few simple clicks in Datascope, easily choose what, when and how data is logged and transferred

Cloud: Diagnostics Manager

The Sibros Diagnostics Manager offers Over-the-Air diagnostics to track, manage and run analysis of deeply buried meta data in true real time at both the vehicle and fleet level. Diagnostics Manager collects, streams, analyzes and interprets fault codes into usable data for actionable insights. This allows OEMs to optimize vehicle health across R&D, after-sale and warranty scenarios by enabling advanced failure detection, preventative maintenance, as well as knowing exactly what, when and where to send software updates and ECU calibrations down to the vehicle.

The solution has been architected to work across the broadest spectrum of on-board components - fuel systems, brakes, batteries, suspension, engine sensors, powertrain, and much more.  

  • Proactively monitors on-board device data over-the-air
  • Registers every single alert in the vehicle
  • Analyzes vehicle health parameters in real time
  • Early intervention enables advanced failure prediction detection
  • Open APIs to extend OTA diagnostics services to 3rd parties and partners
  • Standardizes and interprets fault codes into human-readable formats
  • Works across all vehicle models, powertrain architectures and chipset families

Cloud: Service Manager

By combining the power of whole-vehicle OTA updates and deep data logging, vehicles with Sibros powered connectivity gain a unique competitive advantage to improve overall service management delivery. Service Manager gives OEMs, dealers, partners and fleet operators fingertip access to vital vehicle metadata and full lifecycle health insights to streamline work/service order, parts inventory, fleet management and more including:

  • Full vehicle data, update, and health history at VIN/owner level
  • Robust policy control by custom vehicle groups, tags, configurations & trims
  • Open APIs for quick integration with parts and warranty management systems
  • Optimize maintenance time and costs with real time diagnostic alerts
  • Global geo-location maps and analytics for single vehicles or custom groups
  • Recharge scheduling management for electrified vehicle fleets  

Firmware: Deep Logger

Deep Logger is the in-vehicle solution powered by the Sibros Data Bridge and Log Manager. These two components can be deployed on separate or unified hardware, such as a single Linux/QNX machine. Deep Logger offers highly configurable rules to log data based on event-based scenarios, rules and triggers.

The Data Bridge is an ultra lightweight application that buffers, timestamps and sends data from the internal vehicle networks to the vehicle gateway and Log Manager.

The Log Manager is responsible for all vehicle-to-cloud data transfer (over Ethernet, CAN, LIN, FLEX-RAY) and allows for highly granular and advanced filtering rules including:

  • MDF/PCAN File Logging
  • Live Logging
  • Selective Logging
  • Event Logging
  • Data Scrubbing
  • Data Compression
  • Data Recycling Scrubber
