Project Teaser: EXPO2023by STARTUP AUTOBAHN powered by Plug and Play

Ensuring quality and resource efficiency in production

in cooperation with the STARTUP AUTOBAHN partner Mercedes-Benz AG

As electrical complexity is growing, so does the risk that it will affect product quality. During the ramp-up phase and the shift to production, employees need to run diagnostic tests to determine potential interruption areas. Today, researchers rely often on extensive PDF documentation for wiring paths to understand the networking of a vehicle. With countless equipment variants and up to 1000 electrical contacts per wiring harness per vehicle, one interruption in a single connection can cause various error entries in different ECUs. Searching manually for all the relevant information in the circuit diagram and linking it with results from other systems is a huge effort.
