Nebula Systems ‘inundated with interest’ at Automechanika
The team at Nebula Systems Ltd are busier than ever as they continue to work through enquiries generated at Automechanika Frankfurt last month.
The world-leading aftermarket show saw Nebula introduce MECH5®, their game-changing diagnostics platform for independent garages, to a global aftermarket audience for the first time.
The five day show is expected to have drawn up to 150,000 visitors, yet even amongst over 4,000 exhibitors Nebula Systems say MECH5 was unique.
The next-generation diagnostics system is a secure, cloud-based, vehicle data analytics platform that can help garages access the wealth of data within the ECUs of modern vehicles from any device through the cloud. It requires only an internet connection and the MECH5 Bluetooth OBD Vehicle Communications Interface (VCI).
“We had almost every diagnostics brand you could think of visit our stand,” said Andrew Steer, CEO of Nebula Systems. “Right now there’s a lot of amazement at the level of data and functionality we can deliver through MECH5.”
The show also saw a constant stream of enquiries from IT companies and systems developers looking to harness the power of MECH5 through application programming interfaces (APIs).
And whilst Andrew says looking at these opportunities is ‘very much in the plans’ the priority now is commercial launch into the UK market.
This will happen before the end of 2016, with MECH5 initially offer the functionality of the renowned DEC Superscan 3 for a wide range of vehicles.
“The immediate benefit for garages is that they can access MECH5 anytime, anywhere and on any web-enabled device,” added Andrew.
“It’s fast to use, and incredibly stable so we can develop future coverage much more quickly; there’s no reliance on specialist IT hardware which takes a lot of cost and complications away.”

About Nebula Systems and MECH5
Nebula Systems Ltd was formed in 2014 to harness the combined expertise of Maverick Technology (UK) Ltd and DEC Automotive of Argentina to work on next-generation cloud-based diagnostics and data systems.
DEC Automotive began in 1995 to meet demand for automotive diagnostic tools in the South American market, later growing into a world leader in equipment manufacture and software development.
Maverick was established in 1999, then supporting independent garages moving into the fast-developing world of advanced diagnostic tools, since successfully selling and supporting many market leading brands.
Nebula Systems Ltd was acquired by RAC in March 2016. RAC Telematics managing director Nick Walker anticipated this would “lead to the RAC moving from a reactive, to a proactive and ultimately predictive breakdown service”.
The new MECH5 diagnostics system is a secure, cloud-based, vehicle data analytics platform that can help garages access the wealth of data within the ECUs of modern vehicles. The mission is to revolutionise the ways technicians perform diagnostics and repairs on modern vehicles.
The system itself comprises the small “MECH5 vci”, a Bluetooth OBD Vehicle Communications Interface (VCI), supported with an internet subscription package. This combination brings complete flexibility to perform diagnostics through the cloud, so technicians can access anytime, anywhere and on any web-enabled device.
