owners are tampering
Environmental protection systems are under threat
Environmental protection systems (EPS) play a vital role in reducing harmful vehicle emissions. However, there is increasing clear evidence of illegal manipulation of these systems by vehicle owners; a situation made possible by the fact that current on-board diagnostic systems (OBD) are not intended to detect extended malicious interventions to vehicle systems.
Key leaders are addressing tampering head on
DIAS combines leaders in industry, academia and regulatory authorities to research, develop and test multiple systems with the ability to eradicate tampering.
A thorough two-level plan to stamp out tampering
DIAS starts with current OBD and follows a two-level approach. The first level is the development of an enhanced OBD system, assessing its resistance to tampering and creating intermediate regulatory guidelines. The second level will be the development of more advanced cloud-based diagnostics systems involving two-way communication that foresees swift tampering detection.
The Controller Area Network standard represents one of the most commonly used communication protocol present in today’s vehicles.
