This presentation will cover Product Information Catalog and Vehicle Listing (vPIC). and how it can assist analysts in discovering vehicle safety insights in advanced vehicle safety. Currently it is estimated that over 350 public systems are using vPICs vehicle identification number (VIN) decoding service. The service to the public comes in the form of a combination of simple interfaces and a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) that can allow for large volumes of data to be processed. Data available is based on authoritative submittals to the federal government by manufacturers and supports the self-certification process in which the manufacturer confirms their vehicles comply with baseline safety standards.
