Managing Vehicle Life Cycle: Engineering, Production & Operation, using Digital Twin and Simulation, based on VSS
COVESA’s Vehicle Signal Specification (VSS) is a common approach for describing vehicle data. Its extensible data model provides a common understanding of vehicle data. The automotive industry is adopting the use of Digital Twin and Simulations in the design and manufacturing of vehicles. As an example, Denso will present a vehicle application platform, QUAD, that empowers third party developers to build vehicle applications using a Digital Twin (DUO) that stores data in VSS format. Data and data models, such as VSS are critical for both Digital Twin and Simulations. Currently VSS is primarly used for connected passenger vehicles. Bosch’s speakers will explore the VSS standard and its siblings with a particular focus on its fitness for commercial vehicles. It is important to explore this with other vehicles such as Autonomous Mobile Robots. Using VSS for vehicle life cycle, in engineering, manufacturing and operations, will provide tremendous benefits to the industry by removing silos approaches.
