Not sure if this is the right place so please point me to the right place if needed.
I have an input of a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) number with 17 characters, each character is either an uppercase letter or number.
The input is then encoded into 24 signed integers, the integers go from -128 to +127.
There doesn't seem to be any direct linear relationship between the two.
Does anyone know what this encoding might be? Or, how I should go about trying to reverse engineering it?
An example is:
Input: 1D8HB58D04F177301 Output:-2|-72|-11|-2|18|100|-69|15|93|120|15|-97|-35|52|85|-114|53|-123|-1|-101|-38|125|-100|113
I have access to a dataset mapping the inputs to outputs and also a tool that converts an encoding (24 integers) into a VIN
Inexperienced with this so any help is greatly appreciated!
