Delphi Offering Auto IQ with Connected Car Telematics Solution

Del­phi Prod­uct and Ser­vice Solu­tions, along with after­mar­ket part­ners, unveiled its at the recent AAPEX Show dur­ing Auto­mo­tive After­mar­ket Indus­try Week in Las Vegas, adding auto deal­er-lev­el ser­vice capa­bil­i­ties. Auto IQ fea­tures the Con­nect­ed Car Telem­at­ics Solu­tion (CCTS). This device plugs into the vehicle’s under-dash OBD II con­nec­tor and, through a cel­lu­lar modem or a Blue­tooth con­nec­tion to a smart­phone, com­mu­ni­cates through the cloud with Del­phi fire­wall-pro­tect­ed servers with­in a vir­tu­al pri­vate net­work.

The Del­phi servers can iden­ti­fy the vehi­cle iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber and decide if that indi­cates a spe­cif­ic repair part is like­ly to be need­ed, and trans­mit the data to servers in a des­ig­nat­ed after­mar­ket ser­vice net­work. By inte­gra­tion into a part supplier’s e-cat­a­log, CCTS can get the parts num­ber and ensure that the ser­vic­ing shop has it or ready access to it.

Delphi’s Auto IQ uses a PC plat­form with a vehi­cle com­mu­ni­ca­tions inter­face (VCI) device that plugs into the OBD II con­nec­tor at one end, the PC or a tablet at the oth­er. It sup­ports most auto­mo­tive data bus, diag­nos­tic, and repro­gram­ming pro­to­cols for appli­ca­tions con­nect­ed to the Detroit 3 automak­ers. At the inde­pen­dent garage ser­vice lev­el, Auto IQ and the VCI pro­vide such func­tion­al­i­ty as access to repair infor­ma­tion, enhanced diag­nos­tic data, and bidi­rec­tion­al con­trols, of which there are thou­sands for GM, Chrysler, and Ford.
