I'm sure many of you observed a situation where a car driver listens to the car and says something like "damn, I think something with the motor", although your ears sound absolutely normal. Some experienced workers in the workshop can determine the fault even other people's cars. In General, would like to do artificial intelligence from the Israeli company 3DSignals. They have created an AI system that uses the principles of deep machine learning, listens to the sounds produced by the mechanisms, and looking for signs of incipient failure.
For the necessary equipment (be it a car engine or Assembly line) the company's specialists 3DSignals set of ultrasonic microphones that can detect acoustic vibrations in the range of almost from 0 to 100 kHz. The data collected by these microphones are transmitted to a cloud server where they are processed are engaged in specially designated areas of the global neural network. When the deviation of the fluctuations from normal values, the system identifies a possible type of fault and notify the owner.
Now 3DSignals already working with a number of companies in the sector of heavy industry and is in talks with firms planning to deploy in the future network of driverless taxi robots. According to one of the founders of 3DSignals Yair Lavi,
"The passenger of the taxi will never even think about the technical condition of the car. In this case, the car should be able to determine the presence of conditions to the occurrence of faults in time and to arrive at a repair shop, where it will be appropriate services, and our company will provide the opportunity to all customers, no matter in what corner of the globe they are, and the number of cars in their fleet."
