Diagnostic vehicle tester adopts a plugin approach

With Version 8 of the vehicle diagnostic tester Indigo, introduces the Plugin Installer Concept and software development kit (SDK) to offer new possibilities to individualise and optimise remote diagnostics, says Vector.

The to the company, Indigo, can be customised and expanded as required without any knowledge of diagnostic protocols. This makes it easy to integrate Indigo into an existing customer-specific development process.

The Plugin Installer Concept facilitates the installation of individual extensions. In addition to the Indigo installation, an Indigo user plug-in is delivered, which can be installed without administrator rights to extend Indigo functionally. Adaptations to individual user requirements are implemented by Vector on request.

Users can now also quickly extend functionality on a smaller scale themselves using the Indigo software development kit (SDK). This allows the implementation of own use case diagnostic windows as well as access to the full range of functions of the Vector Diagnostic Scripting libraries.

Remote diagnostics benefits from optimisations to the Vector online services. In a web portal, the user creates an account that can be used for all Vector remote diagnostic and flash tools.
