Connected vehicle analytics has a promise to substantially advance vehicle prognostics and health management. However, the practical implementation of connected vehicle prognostics faces a number of challenges, such as the limitation of communication bandwidth resulting in potential loss of data that is critical for adequate prognostics models. The paper discusses a modelling framework for connected vehicle prognostics for dynamic systems that allows addressing connectivity limitations and memory constraints. The framework is based on a hybrid prognostics approach combining in-vehicle physics-based data aggregation model and cloud-based data-driven prognostics leveraging cross-vehicle and external data sources. The application of the framework is illustrated by models for brake pads wear and cabin air filter prognostics.
