The technology provider Pumacy is developing carwatch.net a platform for analyzing technical and safety-related vehicle incidents. In the EU project OVeC we developed an extractor for this purpose, which collects recall information from news articles.
Vehicle manufacturers and suppliers produce to the highest quality and safety standards. At the same time, vehicles are under special observation by the authorities. The entire supply chain is well regulated and vehicles are regularly inspected once they are in use. The relevant quality standard for the automotive industry, IATF 16949, has stipulated since 2020 that every manufacturer involved in the vehicle is responsible for monitoring its products, including parts installed in vehicles, in the field. This is often very difficult for component and parts manufacturers further down the supply chain. PUMACY, a company specializing in data analysis, supports vehicle suppliers worldwide in collecting and structuring data from a wide variety of information sources and evaluating it using innovative data analysis and AI methods.
As part of the EU project EUHubs4Datain which DAISEC is a member, an open platform for vehicle-related communication was developed in the OVeC (Open Platform for Vehicle-related Communication) experiment. This is intended to enrich official recall data with additional information from publicly accessible sources. DAISEC supported the development of a prototype of a message extractor that can be used to recognize vehicle recall-related information in news articles and assign it to the respective vehicle recalls in a structured manner.
