ASAM ODS Data Import Option


ASAM ODS is an automotive industry standard and defines a generic data model for the interpretation of data, interfaces for managing models, saving data, accessing data as well as exchanging data.

The data model consists of a base model, an application model and instances. The base model is the same for all applications and is defined by ASAM ODS. It consists of base elements and base relations (relationship between two base elements). For instance, AoMeasurementQuantity is a measured physical size. The model classifies the available information into different areas:

Test result management: AoTest, AoSubTest, AoMeasurement

Test result storage: AoSubMatrix, AoLocalColumn

Information: AoUnitUnderTest, AoTestEquipment, AoTestDevice etc.

The application model is application-specific, which means that different applications are described by different application models. It is based on the base model and determines what type of elements are actually represented in the data storage.

Both models contain meta information about the structure of the stored data. The data is stored in instance elements. An instance element is clearly identified by a name and ID. A value is stored in an instance element for each application attribute. In addition, an instance element can contain attributes that were not defined in the application model (instance attributes). The instance elements can have relationships to other instance elements.

These instances (instance elements, attributes, relationships) are displayed in the Windows ASAM ODS Data Source. You can define particular views that display only part of the information. You can also search for instance elements.
