This paper describes a scheme of remote diagnosis using data networks to decrease the on-board computational effort. A new scheme based on the decomposition of the diagnostic task into an on-board and off-board component is proposed, where the fault detection task is carried out by the on-board component, whereas fault isolation and identification are accomplished by the off-board component. The focus of this paper is on the diagnosis of discrete-event systems with deterministic and timed automata. A state reduction method is proposed for reducing the complexity of both diagnostic tasks.
