Unleash data power

Data Management Solution AVL SANTORIN MX 2™

Integration and harmonization of heterogenous data sources for next level data processing

Developing and securing a growing number of vehicle variants with increasing complexity in a short time-to-market generates a vast amount of data. This is especially true with complex systems such as modern electric and electrified powertrains. The development and testing of vehicle concepts to ensure compliance with RDE and emission requirements also produces huge volumes of data.

Managing all this data, getting the most value from it, and meeting new regulations for traceability and product liability are some of the big challenges facing today’s automotive industry. That's why we developed AVL SANTORIN MX2™ to help OEMs, such as Mercedes-Benz AG, manage their data.

Harnessing the Power of Big Data

This intelligent data management solution enables you to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow with harmonized data integration, search, exploration and processing. Storing and qualifying heterogenous data in a consistent and synchronized way, it helps you reduce data siloes and logically connects data from a variety of sources to provide you with a harmonized view.

A unified and intelligent data integration platform, it is ASAM ODS compliant, which allows you to use it with third-party, non AVL systems and enables revision safety and traceability. Promoting data quality, time saving and productivity, it provides you with quick, unified navigation, and the open provision of data. Additional features include standardized, efficient and automated server-based data processing and reporting. Variants are also available to support your development of electrified systems and PEMS emission testing.


Key Features

At its core, SANTORIN MX 2 is structured around four main components.


SANTORIN MX 2 offers you a structured view of your data, with web based quick search. You can explore measurement data and metadata from both AVL and non-AVL test systems, and provision it for server post-processing.


SANTORIN MX 2 provides you with advanced system administration tools and data lifecycle management. With batch-based data cleaning and archiving, data integration management and surveillance, and use and role management, it covers all of your administration requirements in one place.


The Automate feature combines data management with server-based data processing, allowing you to convert measurements into results. This works best when the system is paired with AVL CONCERTO 5™, but you can use it with any ASAM ODS-compliant evaluation tool.


The system also boasts powerful tools to enable you to intelligently integrate, harmonize and transform heterogenous data sources. Supporting you with norm-name mapping and ATF(X) file conversion, domain-specific database schema n a single database, and ASAM ODS mixed-mode handling, SANTORIN MX 2™ is both capable and comprehensive.


Specific, Practical Applications

As well as being a powerful tool for all of your general data management needs, it also offers you a great deal of value for highly specialized development tasks. For these applications we have created specific tools to support your activities.

AVL SANTORIN MX 2™ for Electrification

The SANTORIN MX 2 platform supports the complex exponential data growth associated with the development and testing of electrified and electrification systems. With cell, module and pack testbeds easily recording up to 14.4 billion data point in 24 hours, SANTORIN MX 2 offers you the scalability you need to easily manage any file size and number of data points.

When combined with CONCERTO 5, you can parallelize your activities. This cuts time-intensive tasks and makes all of your data – wherever it comes from – decision-relevant.

By maintaining high data quality, while managing complexity and reducing time, it enables you to embrace new advanced methodologies and digitalization approaches. This, in turn, allows you to maximize the efficiency of your entire workflow.

AVL SANTORIN MX 2™ for Emission Testing

SANTORIN MX 2 can also play a vital role in your emission testing activities, and is a key module of our AVL PEMS Data Management Solution. This package of tools, which also includes AVL M.O.V.E™ and CONCERTO M.O.V.E Data Toolbox, brings testing activities, automated analysis and reporting tasks into a single workflow.

The inclusion of SANTORIN MX 2 allows you to make the best use of historical data. Where, in the past, historical data might have been under-utilized due to, for example, different file formats and data siloes, it can all now be made available for your development and testing tasks.

This benefits everyone, from your test engineers to the setup team, as well as the test driver and lab manager. The result is that your emission testing becomes manageable, reliable, quicker and more affordable.
