A comprehensive diagnostics and prognostics Vehicle Health Management (VHM) Toolbox. The VHM Toolbox provides advanced data-mining capabilities to determine vehicle and fleet-level maintenance trends and failure mechanisms to improve platform availability and system lifecycle management. Two Toolbox variants will be created: i) On-vehicle toolbox for real-time laptop/mobile operation will fit within a small compute and memory footprint suitable for laptop or Smartphone application. ii) Off-vehicle, fleet-level toolbox will continuously monitor incoming data, update its view of the world, and have the required speed to cope with huge datasets. Data entering the VHM toolbox flows through five processing stages: (a) Data preparation (b) Modeling, (c) Diagnosis, (d) Prognostics, and (e) Performance & Uncertainly Analysis. The framework, whose individual modules have been proven effective in various other applications, is an open modular environment, designed to accept new algorithms, integrate within existing systems, and encourage continuous collaborative innovation.
