VPVision – Heavy Duty Vehicle Telemetry
More reliable, Better performing, Lower cost, cutting-edge…
Whether you’re a vehicle OEM or Operator, the transition to a low carbon economy and the electrification of vehicles is both challenging and a huge opportunity. By connecting to VPVision you can unite your hardware with the latest cloud computing services and unleash the power of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics and Edge Computing on to your vehicles and vehicle systems. Data is at the core of everything we do – we know powertrains and we know lithium-ion batteries because we design and make them here at Vantage Power!
With vehicle, powertrain and battery domain expertise on hand, and the absolute latest cloud computing capabilities, VPVision enables:
Lower-cost, streamlined aftermarket service and support,
Compliance with increasingly complex legislation,
Reduced time to market quicker for new products,
Better management of technical and operational risks,
The creation of new value streams.
The following services are provided by Vantage Power. Having designed and developed various heavy-duty powertrains, we understand the equipment being connected and what the data means, so we can maximise the power of data streams and next-gen telemetry system in ways others simply don’t know how to.
- Requirements Generation
- Vehicle Integration
- Validation Testing
- Fault Code Optimisation
- Vehicle Performance Optimisation
- Innovation Services
From 1 to ~10 connected devices – trials assist clients in specifying a system ideal for them.
VP works with customers to establish a set of requirements tailored to their application, organisational needs or specific problems.
VPVision is an end-to-end solution. We work with our customers to ensure VPVision is correctly integrated and configured to their products, including the provision of wiring looms and other vehicle interfaces.
Alternatively, if a customer has in-house integration expertise then our remote integration service allows them to work independently following our step by step process.
Every installation comes with a comprehensive validation process to ensure precise data capture, accuracy of information and ultimately customer satisfaction.
When a customer connects their vehicles to VPVision they’ll see which faults are frequently occurring and where issues are being experienced without faults being flagged – this makes it possible to identify improvement areas.
At VP, we have a great deal of experience in analysing the raw data that sits behind fault codes, and how fault codes can be modified and improved. We rapidly develop and validate new alerts in response to complex emerging problems and even introduce prognostic alerts, allowing clients to take a proactive approach to problems. These new alarms can be tried and tested in the cloud across thousands of vehicles before a single deployment it made.
VPVision reports on the real-world performance and compliance of connected components and vehicles. With an array of analysis and visualisation techniques, clients can view and understand product performance throughout a duty cycle and identify problem or improvement areas. Using VP’s battery, electronics, engine and vehicle control system domain expertise, we are able to propose performance optimisations, simulate and validate these in the cloud in advance of on-vehicle trials.
VPVision is supported by incredibly powerful architecture and a technical skillset that covers the spectrum of vehicle, data and cloud – providing a truly end to end solution.
If you require an app or a data-driven service not currently provided by VPVision, get in touch. We have safety-critical control software engineers on-hand to deliver incredibly advanced and interactive new capabilities to your requirements.
There are two type of types of technology involved: Telemetry and Vehicle Systems – It’s only when you understand both that real value can be generated from the data.
At Vantage Power we have designed, manufactured and fielded our own powertrains and lithium-ion batteries, we can bridge the gap between heavy-duty vehicle and cloud computing to deliver massive value in new and novel ways.
The VPVision telemetry technology breaks down into 4 areas:
- On-vehicle equipment
- Software platform
- User interface
- Advanced capabilities
VPVision is delivered on-board the vehicle via the Edge 1.0, a rugged IP67 hardware unit, tried and tested in many thousand applications and millions of driving hours. The hardware is configurable, powerful and expandable, ensuring it has the resources to obtain and process required data.
The datasheet for the Edge 1.0 can be found below in the DOWNLOADS section.
The software resides on the Edge 1.0, located on-vehicle, and in the cloud, working in combination to form a highly capable, scalable and flexible platform. The platform is configurable and can transmit and receive data in different ways, enabling an optimal combination of capability, security and cost.
VPVisions cutting-edge cloud architecture can transform this data in to insights and actionable information. With access to massive low-cost data storage and huge computing capability, VPVision can process and present live streaming data within seconds and analyse vast quantities of data to extract patterns, trends and anomalies from the data – over millions of connected devices.
VPVision is provided with a customisable browser-based web interface, where apps can be enabled to suit individual requirements. It’s PC, tablet and mobile compatible so can be accessed easily field service engineers. The website is encrypted and secure, with password-controlled access to ensure users access is tailored to them.
VPVision can be provided as a white labelled product – Alternatively, if a custom API can be provided to ensure the right data in the right format is delivered to wherever you need it.
VPVision leverages the latest cloud technologies to ensure it can deliver advanced and valuable capabilities. Three technologies we have utilised and deployed to date include:
- Machine Learning
- Edge Computing
- Big Data Analytics
Utilising these services, our engineers can deliver performance improvements to fielded products, reliability improvements, fault prognostics and deploy complex computation to operate on vehicle – reducing the cost of our cloud computing platform.
The application of these technologies within the heavy-duty vehicle sector is huge and the benefits are obtainable today. To see how these capabilities can help OEMs transition to electric vehicles, see the DOWNLOADS section.
