Automotive instrumentation and diagnostic system (MID) refers to the process of analyzing, detecting, and interpreting data that are obtained from an automobile. The Automotive Information Management Association (AAIMA) defines the Automotive Industry Data Management (ADM) concept. As defined by the Association, Automotive Informatics and Management (AIM) is “the management of information resources for the purpose of optimizing performance.” As stated by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of Technology, ” AUTOMOTIF is a business intelligence system that provides data for decision support regarding components, vehicles, and networks.” As stated by Dr. George Ingber, former chief information officer of Chrysler, “AUTOMOTIF has transformed the way in which companies analyze data, which has enabled us to drive innovation in all areas of our business.”
Automotive instrumentation and diagnostic system also includes Cover Molds. According to Bill Fairbanks, director of research and development for Cover Molds at Goodmark Corporation, “Cover Molds can take your product or service to new frontiers of customer markets.” Goodmark Corporation is a recognized leader in the automotive industry includes Cover Molds and Automotive Performance Parts as one of their primary products.
Automatic transmitters are used with Automotif to retrieve data, which is processed by a microprocessor. This process is known as data compression. The process of data compression and the resulting reduction of processing time is what gives Automotif its speed. A microprocessor is an electronic circuit that runs on a single wire to perform the calculations required by Automotif. In addition to speed, this technology is also environmental friendly and promotes security, as it does not require the use of power or fuels.
Another feature of Automotif products is their ability to diagnose and repair Common Automotive Systems (ACEs). These systems include timing belts, power steering, transmissions, engines, brakes, solenoids, fan belts and more. Products also include diagnostics and diagnostic tools. These include diagnostic LED displays, which allow the user to determine the condition of any component in the vehicle. The tool also allows the user to diagnose troubles with a manual scan of the system.
Automotif’s diagnostics and diagnostic tools also have a self-repair feature. This means that if a part needs to be replaced, all that is required is that the part be removed from the Automotif product, remove the original plastic case, push the tab that holds the component in place and push the tab again to engage the part. After doing so, the component is then free to simply snap back into place and the case is then reused for another item. This eliminates the need to purchase an additional part and saves the customer money, since it is the product manufacturer that provides the components instead of an independent repair shop.
Automotif also offers products that allow the replacement of any individual part such as lights or breakers. Many of these parts are also interchangeable among various models of vehicles, allowing customers to replace broken lights in their cars or other items in their vehicles. Additionally, many of these parts are also compatible with a wide range of aftermarket products. These parts include automotive fasteners, tie rods, windshields and more. Products range in price depending on the size and quality of the part being replaced and can be found at most local dealers.
