What is the vehicle configuration database (VCdb)?
The vehicle configuration
database (VCdb) is a fully
normalized, relational database of vehicle configurations for passenger cars
and light trucks sold in the US, Canada and Mexico. Base vehicle information
(Year, Make, Model and Submodel) for Vintage vehicles (1896 – 1950) has also
been added to the VCdb. The VCdb represents nearly 50 unique attributes,
organized into vehicle systems or attribute groups that are validated against
base vehicle and sub-model combinations. The structure of the database allows
auto care industry companies to communicate applications with as much or as
little detail as necessary. The result is more precise, accurate data.
The VCdb is an essential
element of any data solution that aims to manage and communicate complex
vehicle information in an industry standardized format.
