Modern automotive electronic control systems are distributed, networked embedded systems. Diagnostic routines implemented on individual components cannot adequately identify the true cause of anomalous behavior because their view is restricted to component-local information. A growing trend in diagnostics research for these systems is to use system-level(More)
— The key objectives of this paper are to analyze and implement a novel moving horizon model predictive estimation scheme based on constrained nonlinear optimization techniques for inferring the survival functions and residual useful life (RUL) of components in coupled systems. The approach employs a data-driven prognostics framework that combines failure(More)
—This paper presents mathematical models, design and experimental validation, and calibration of a model-based diagnostic algorithm for an electric-power generation and storage automotive system, including a battery and an alternator with a rectifier and a voltage regulator. Mathematical models of these subsystems are derived, based on the physics of(More)
In modern vehicles, controls are distributed over multiple Electronic Control Units (ECUs) that are connected through in-vehicle communication networks. Fault diagnostics for such a distributed control system is very challenging, which has resulted in many no-trouble-found (NTF) cases during warranty repairs. To address this problem, we propose a novel(More)
Previous studies suggest a correlation of central venous pressure (CVP) with peripheral venous pressure (PVP) in different clinical settings. The effect of body temperature on PVP and its agreement with CVP in patients under general anesthesia are investigated in this study. Fifteen American Society of Anesthesiologists I-II patients undergoing elective(More)
