Abstract

The data handling device is provided as a hand-held IR or radio transceiver (1) communicating with a vehicle (2) and a diagnosis tester (4), having a display screen for displaying data and/or information, with display controls arranged along the edge of the display screen. A cursor can be controlled by the display controls for selecting the required image information, with command and/or quitting switches associated with the transmitter and/or receiver.

Description

The invention relates to a device for recording, display and output be of data in the context of a vehicle diagnosis.

Vehicle diagnostics work with a tester that is arranged in a stationary position net or is movable to a small extent. The inclusion of data, for example wise fault data of a motor vehicle, is wired over cables that are connected to the motor vehicle. For this is a diagnosis, for example socket provided. A service order is entered outside the actual workshop (off-line). The vehicle and the (Diagnostic) tester not nearby or at least inactive. Occasionally Lich an inspection of the motor vehicle by a service mechanic, mostly in the presence of the vehicle owner, but the error diagnosis is often untidy nau, since it is based on the information provided by the vehicle user or on the visual inspection positions of the mechanic. Given the increasing complexity Modern motor vehicles often have the result of such a fault diagnosis inaccurate.

The invention has for its object a device of the aforementioned to create the way that vehicle diagnosis is significantly improved.  

The invention solves this problem by the characterizing features of Pa claim 1.

With the help of the portable unit, it is now possible to drive the motor vehicle directly and without querying a cable connection. The data of the motor vehicle Stuff are output from error memories and the like Ness. There they are displayed on the screen in a legible form. It is possible, the errors as lettering, in the form of a pictogram or another ren graphical representation. With the unit itself, the issue can the data is controlled by the vehicle. So on the screen Interactively recognizable, which type is a possible error and / or where the source of the error sits. It is then also possible to further manipulate the motor vehicle make stuff, for example to start the engine or with Operate predetermined speed or actuators for equipment equipment components such as lighting, heating and the like to reproduce a possible error. This makes the diagnosis much better because the cause of the error can be tracked down and in dialogue with the driver Witness users queried their error observations and by the diagnostician result can be confirmed.

With the unit it is not only possible to carry out the vehicle diagnosis, but also initiate subsequent administrative and work processes. Of the The transmitter is no longer used to have a dialogue with the vehicle, but rather, the recorded data in a scan tool and / or Enter data network. The latter is for example with the order acceptance connected and allows to create a repair order. This needs then only to be signed off by the vehicle user and serves as Document for the service work to be carried out. Once the service has been carried out can also document this by transmitting a data signal to the unit be animals. For example, the display of the performed work possible. In the presence of the vehicle user, for example the correct operation of the vehicle can be demonstrated. Exist beforehand de errors no longer occur. This can correspond to on the screen appropriate presentation to the vehicle user.  

Advantageous embodiments of the invention are in the further patent claims described. Depending on the application, alternative designs can also be used be selected.

Instead of a combined transceiver, several can Transmitter and receiver can be provided, for example, in parallel to a dialog with the vehicle, dealer network and scan tool Ren. Instead of infrared signals, radio signals can also be used.

Control elements for influencing the displayed image can both on the image be arranged on the edge of the screen or in the display area (touch screen). Instead of a cursor, the function shown or selected can also be used be optically highlighted.

Instead of an acknowledgment switch on the underside, it can also be sent to others Place, for example, be arranged laterally on the unit.

Instead of own energy supply, energy supply can also wirelessly, for example from the dealer network. The unit contains then a transponder.

The invention is further explained on the basis of the drawing. It shows

Fig. 1 is a diagram for explaining the function of the unit according to the invention in a vehicle diagnostics,

Fig. 2 shows the unit of Fig. 1 in plan view and from below and

Fig. 3 shows a relay station via which the unit of Fig. 1 and 2 is connected to a service network.

The unit shown in FIG. 1 enables a diagnostic technician to check the status of a vehicle and to initiate any necessary service work. For this purpose, the unit 1 has a transceiver unit which can enter into a dialogue with a vehicle 2 and, at the same time or subsequently, also communicates with a dealer network 3 or a diagnostic tester 4 . The dialog with the motor vehicle 2 serves to query fault memories (not shown), which are provided centrally or, for example, in each control unit. A mobile transceiver, for example, serves as the input-output medium for the data signals and can be plugged onto the engine diagnostic socket and is described in the earlier German patent application 195 29 741.5. A relay station 6 , which is described in detail in FIG. 3, is provided for the dialogue with the network 3 . The dialog with the diagnostic tester 4 takes place via a combined transceiver 7 .

In the unit 1 ( Fig. 2) is used to display the data and / or related information such as characters, pictograms and the like. A screen 8 , which in a known manner, for. B. is built in LCD technology. To control the screen display, e.g. B. to display a submenu, a trackball 9 and / or control panels 10 and 11 are optionally or additionally used, which are arranged on the side of the screen and control a cursor (not shown) horizontally (field 10 ) or vertically (field 11 ).

On the underside of the unit 1 , which is shown in the lower part of Fig. 2, are the acknowledgment buttons 12 within easy reach. As a result, submenus can be called up, dialog commands can be issued, for example, for reading out fault memories of the motor vehicle, or programs can be started with the aid of which the vehicle can be operated in a defined manner (for example at a defined speed). A separate power supply in the form of a battery mulator 13 is also shown schematically, which can be charged via a charging point 14 by an external charger.

The relay station 6 shown in FIG. 3 contains a CD drive 15 , a drive for floppy disks 16 , an operating display 17 , a radio antenna 18 and a connection cable 19 to which the relay station 6 can be connected to the network 4 . With a CD z. B. test routines or diagnostic data in the relay station 6 are given. On the basis of this data, the dialogue with the unit 1 can then be carried out via the radio antenna 18 . In the opposite direction, the data of the unit 1 can be recorded via the radio antenna 18 and stored on a floppy disc and / or entered into the dealer network via the connecting cable 19 . Further processing and administration processes, such as issuing a repair order, can then be carried out.

This makes it possible to simplify vehicle diagnosis and make it realistic and get full diagnostic results.
