Delphi adds Volvo to security gateway solution

Delphi has announced it has integrated Volvo into its security gateway solution as part of its latest diagnostic software update.

Delphi‘s BlueTech diagnostic tool can now automatically obtain Volvo authorisation tokens. It’s a process which automatically authenticates with Volvo’s security gateway, giving technicians unrestricted access to diagnostic functions.

Phil Mitchell, European Workshop Solutions Manager at Delphi, said: “Everyday tasks like reading and clearing fault codes are no longer straightforward on today’s connected vehicles. Our solution streamlines this process, allowing technicians to efficiently perform their jobs without the hassle.”

Security gateways limit access to certain diagnostic functions, allowing only authorised access. It’s a process designed to safeguard connected vehicles from being compromised through hacking.

Phil continued: “Trying to manually gain access through these gateways is incredibly time consuming for busy workshops. Technicians need a VM authorisation token for each job, requiring workshops to manage multiple portal accounts and handle the headache of purchasing credits and invoicing. Delphi is taking away that hassle by simplifying the whole process. Register once, and we’ll do the rest.”

Workshops using Delphi’s DS180 BlueTech diagnostics tool with DS car and light commercial vehicle software, get direct access to Iveco, Mercedes-Benz and Smart, Stellantis, Volkswagen Group and now also Volvo, with Renault and Dacia accessible via pass-thru.

Delphi’s automated security gateway allows garages to service security-protected vehicles while DTC-assist functionality provides technicians with guided diagnostic assistance.

Phil concluded: “Purchasing the diagnostic tool is just the starting point. We offer complimentary e-learning diagnostic courses to software license holders, giving them the confidence to undertake complex diagnostic processes.”

Delphi Academy’s six-part security gateway e-learning course is available to book online. Further information about Delphi’s BlueTech vehicle communication interface can be found here.
