Which services or programs are used to predict, diagnose, and repair software and hardware problems on the International Space Station? Can those processes be used on the moon or on Mars once we start building permanent bases there?
Whether for vehicles, industrial equipment, or mental health conditions, diagnosis is crucial to resolving problems but very difficult to do remotely. Thankfully, however, new advances in technology and artificial intelligence have made remote diagnostics possible.
A predictive maintenance model uses sensors and IoT technology to monitor the condition of equipment and predict when it will need repairs or replacements. This equipment may be anything from personal cars to large factory machines.
The machine learning programs used to run these models tend to take either the regression approach or the classification approach. Regression produces more accurate results but relies on more data; classification best predicts equipment failure within a set time period.
