Three papers from DXC have been published in the DX Proceedings. You can find the DX proceedings online at The three papers are also available on this site in the Files section under DX Papers.

Paper Submissions

posted Sep 6, 2011, 9:05 PM by Sriram Narasimhan

If you are not already aware all participants will be allowed to submit a paper that will be included in the DXC section of the DX proceedings. Of course this is optional and you can choose not to submit a paper. However I would strongly recommend that you take advantage of this opportunity to get another publication on your resume. You can write about the technical approach of your algorithm or about specific problems you faced in trying to solve this problem and what you did to overcome them or any thoughts related to DXC and your algorithm. You can see some examples in the DXC sections from last 2 years ( and )


The procedure would involve submission of a first version which will be quickly reviewed by the DXC organizing committee. Please note that goal is not an in depth technical review but to make sure there are no major issues with the paper in terms of formatting or typos or factual errors etc. Paper format and size are as per DX stipulations (Look at the bottom of this link However the submission process would be an email to Scott Poll (cced on this email) with the paper as an attachment. The following is the planned schedule for the paper submission process


Sep 12 (Monday) – Initial version of papers due

Sep 16 (Friday) – Reviews from DXC program committee due

Sep 21 (Wednesday) – Final Camera Ready versions of papers due

Sep 23 (Friday) – Ship the DXC proceedings to the DX organizers


Please let us know immediately if you are planning on submitting a paper. 

FaultTime parameter in DP1

posted Aug 23, 2011, 3:12 PM by Scott Poll

As shown in the example DA, please make sure the FaultTime parameter is given to the framework in seconds, not milliseconds. You might get an incorrect response from the Oracle otherwise.

Java example: fpm.put("FaultTime", Value.v(100.0)); // seconds since scenario start
C++ example: fpm["FaultTime"] = new RealValue(100); // seconds since scenario start

Extended Deadline for submission of final version of algorithms

posted Aug 23, 2011, 11:35 AM by Sriram Narasimhan

The deadline for submission of final version of Diagnostic Algorithms has been extended to August 29th. We will use the latest submission as of August 30th . Please the same procedure that you used for placeholder DA submissions i.e., go to  and use username: dxc and password: dxc(). All of your algorithm files including all dependencies should be packed into a single zip file which should be uploaded. Please prefix the filename with your algorithm name i.e., the file should be of the form .

Updated diagnostic problem I sample data

posted Aug 18, 2011, 11:22 AM by Scott Poll

Extraneous commas in the scenario files for 1251, 1285, 1316, 1323, and 1330 have been removed. Updated sample data for diagnostic problem I have been posted. See the Files section.

No Battery AruptParasiticLoad faults in DP1 and DP2

posted Aug 3, 2011, 10:48 PM by Scott Poll

Diagnostic Problems I and II will not include any scenarios with battery failure mode AbruptParasiticLoad.

Additional DP2 sample scenario posted

posted Aug 3, 2011, 10:33 PM by Scott Poll   [ updated Aug 3, 2011, 10:41 PM ]

We have posted another nominal scenario for Diagnostic Problem II, in addition to the DXC10 data that was posted previously. This scenario is one of the new scenarios that have been acquired for the rematch. Note that battery 3 was replaced since last year's competition. The noise characteristics for some of the sensors are also slightly different (see for example FT520).

You can find the .txt, .mat, and .scn files for this scenario in the Files section or from the appropriate page in the Tracks section. 

Updated Software SystemCatalogs

posted Jun 30, 2011, 12:16 PM by Alberto González

The Software Catalogs description file for the Software track has been updated to reflect the latest changes on how the catalog information is stored.

Framework Files Available

posted Jun 24, 2011, 11:07 AM by Sriram Narasimhan

The DXC Framework files for Windows and Linux operating systems are available in the Files Section. Please note that there are NO CHANGES from last year's framework. However last year a patch was released for the Oracle as a separate zip file. This year's framework files include the patched files.
