SPX

Automobile diagnostic tool

Objective

This tool is used in the dealer maintenance networks of manufacturers such as Renault, Nissan, Peugeot, Citroën, and Honda.

It is simple to use: the technician connects the tool—a workstation—directly to the vehicle's onboard computer and runs diagnostics. The results help identify any problems on the vehicle.

SPX has outsourced software development to India, Bulgaria, and Macedonia.

Codra works in France to:

  • Draft the specifications.
  • Define the integration and functional validation tests.
  • Supervise the off-shore software development. This involves extensive work to define schedules and monitor development milestones.

The technical environment for this project includes Rational Rose, Visual C++, QT, ACE, PVCS, XML,  the CAN protocol, and industry-specific protocols.
