Training: ODX for Diagnostics Developers

This training is designed to convey basic knowledge to interpret ODX description datasets. Another key focus is building knowledge towards PDX data containers, correlations, diagnostic services, diagnostic objects (measurement values, event memory, routines, acutuator tests), parameters, and conversions within the ODX file.

Important note: Due to the ongoing restrictions caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, we reserve the right to cancel or postpone appointments at very short notice.

Duration: 8:30am – 4:00pm

Where: Bruchsal, Germany

Training: OTX – Exchange Format for Test Sequences

Remark: This training is conducted by our partner, emotive GmbH.

The new standard OTX (Open Test sequence eXchange – ISO 13209) has been created as a reusable format for the exchange of test sequences in off-board-diagnosis. Another positive effect is a fundamental contribution to reducing the complexity in today’s automotive development. The usability of OTX, however, is not only limited to vehicle diagnostics. By using suitable libraries it can be used in many different areas ranging from test automation to HIL-Simulation. This training will provide a comprehensive and systematic overview and introduction to the new exchange format for test sequences. Participants will be introduced to the structure and use of OTX data and gain insight on possibilities and limitations of the standard. The contents of the seminar will be explained and illustrated through real world examples, small exercises and live demonstrations.

Target Group:

The seminar is designed for engineers of the vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers. General knowledge of vehicle diagnostics and diagnostic processes is a prerequisite.

Date: Please ask us about an appointment.

Duration: approx. 9:00am – 05:00pm

Location: Bruchsal

For registration and additional information please contact:

We also invite you to inform yourself on our partner emotive. Registration for individual seminars and inquiries are also possible on their website.

Pricing is made available upon inquiry.
