ODX ISO 22901-1 – Open Diagnostic data eXchange

Standardized Exchange of Diagnostic Data Based on ODX

The standard ODX ISO 22901-1 (Open Diagnostic data eXchange) describes an XML format for exchanging diagnostic data. It contains both diagnostic specifics and flash data for individual ECUs, as well as information on accessing the entire vehicle network.

The data is usually processed on a D-Server in accordance with ISO 22900-3.

Softing Experience

Softing has not only actively driven standardization since the beginning, but also implemented the standard from the very beginning. This is why we claim to be the supplier with the greatest experience. Using the ODX description as a basis, we have realized numerous solutions for a whole range of different applications, e.g. editors, creation systems for test environments, checkers etc. In addition, we have immense experience in consulting, and in defining and implementing ODX processes and in the necessary migration scenarios.
