Building Signal Processing Graphically using nCodeDS

Engineers need to gain meaningful insights from both test measurements and real-world usage data in order to reduce development, operational and warranty costs. Today, getting access to this data is not necessarily difficult, but running high performance data fusion, cleaning, transformation and engineering analytics is becoming more and more of a challenge due to the quantity of new data produced every day.

Designed for scalable deployment within the web-based Aqira platform, nCodeDS (nCode Digital Streams) provides both the performance and the engineering functionality required to analyze high volumes of digital bus data, connected vehicle data and a wide range of other data sources. nCodeDS is available in a Python environment enabling a high degree of flexibility. Now nCodeDS is also accessible through a brand new graphical drag-and-drop user interface, which makes the creation of analytics processes quick and easy. In this webinar, we will look at:
  • What is an nCodeDS network and why is it so powerful
  • How to create an nCodeDS process graphically
  • Sharing an nCodeDS process using an app with no coding required

Notes from the presenter

Thanks for watching – we hope you liked the new way of building signal processing graphically using nCodeDS in Aqira 2021!  During the live webinar, attendees asked a number of really interesting questions – so we’d like to share a few answers and tips:

  • What file formats can nCodeDS read? Is it only for CAN data? nCodeDS is particularly fast at processing non-equally spaced data that are typically found in CSV files or MDF4 files coming from vehicle CAN bus. The ability to quickly crunch and reduce this readily available data is a must for applications involving usage monitoring over a fleet of vehicles for instance. But nCodeDS can also process regular test and measurement files e.g. coming from HBK data acquisition hardware and others so, it reads natively a number of binary file formats such as S3t, BIN, PNRF, BKC, RSP, etc.  
  • Can one create an App with both a FlowRunner component and the nCodeDS component? Yes, Aqira can run GlyphWorks, VibeSys, DesignLife and nCodeDS in the same App! Each product has its strengths and combining them is sometimes the best solution. For instance, use nCodeDS to clean and resample input data and follow it with a VibeSys process for more advance noise and vibration analysis or use the data as input to a DesignLife fatigue calculation.
