Delphi – data

Published:  16 September, 2017

A modern car has 280 connections to manage power, diagnostics and signal communication, 3,100 metres of cabling and 300 diagnostic parameters monitoring performance. Within the system, up to 15,000 data messages per second move around a vehicle. Delphi is already building the capabilities to develop and maintain these future advancements within the connected car and recently announced strategic acquisitions in the automotive data sector with Control-Tec, Movimento and Otonomo. Delphi believes that as vehicles become increasingly complex, having access to advanced diagnostic tools, service data and expertise will become more critical.
