Abstract:

This article addresses the issue of a design to provide remote vehicle communication services sustainably. These services include new features such as remote repair of Electronic Control Unit (ECU)’s software errors and feature on demand, to mention just a few key objectives. With the usual implementations of the Modular Vehicle Communication Interface (MVCI) runtime server [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14] many difficulties remain [15]. They are not sustainable and require dedicated hardware.
The Dictionary Server discussed here provides necessary data to diagnostic applications in general, without putting at risk Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)’s expertise. It also provides data to the road infrastructure for V2V- and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2X)-based services. This crucial diagnostic data contains ECUs’ communication parameters, memory programming data, and other available functions. They are kept confidentially by OEMs. Furthermore, our solution is nondisruptive, as it also supports traditional vehicle communication services. We evaluated a prototype in terms of time complexity, scalability, and availability.
