Mves: A Mobile Vehicle Expert System for the Automobile Industry

By Nana Yaw Asabere and Simonov Kusi-sarpong


Vehicles used in our daily lives are no more considered as a luxury but a necessity. Vehicles are very helpful in our movement, logistics and transport activities. Vehicles are normally fault-prone and require efficient automobile engineering services to repair or maintain such faults. The characteristic mobility of vehicles allows them to develop faults anywhere and anytime and in some of these circumstances it is very difficult to seek the services of an auto mechanic at a vehicle fault site. Through mobile and wireless technologies, we propose mVES – a Mobile Vehicle Expert System for vehicle troubleshooting through a driver’s mobile device. The research focus involved in the paper are broadly divided into two classes: (i) how to deal with an issue of a vehicle that is giving problems of sparking/starting the engine and (ii) how to deal with the problems of cooling systems of vehicles. With the efficient and effective mVES proposed in this paper, vehicle owners and drivers can diagnose their vehicle faults and problems with ease anytime and anywhere through the initial diagnosis and further advice of the proposed Expert System. The knowledge-base collected for the mVES proposed in this paper consists of a collection of knowledge from automobile/mechanical engineer experts and a website and constitutes a 15 Rule-Based procedure/strategy
