SAE J1979-2 and -3: OBDII goes UDS, Hosted by Softing and Kvaser
SAE J1979-2 and -3: OBD goes UDS – Future Legislation, Diagnostics and Testing

Join Kvaser and our partner Softing Automotive for a joint webinar on Wednesday, December 7th at 10:00am EDT to find out how the latest CAN technology enhancements (CAN, CAN FD, CAN XL) support UDS, what the new SAE J1979 regulations mean in practice for diagnostics testing, and how OEMs and Tier 1s can benefit. The webinar will provide an introduction to the pairing of Kvaser’s U100 interface with Softing TDX’s diagnostic test development suite for servicing road vehicles and mobile machinery. The latter includes protocol templates for UDS that once developed, can be reused.

The latest versions of the SAE J1979-2 and -3 require the use of UDS (Unified Diagnostic Services) for the diagnostic communication between the vehicle's emissions-related OBD system and external test equipment. With vehicle diagnostics standardizing around UDS, be they combustion vehicles or EVs, it’s time to get to know this standard. Sign up for this informative webinar today.

Dec 7, 2022 10:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
