The Motion Control and Industrial Applications (MCIA UPC) centre is collaborating with the company MAPRO to develop a platform for smart monitoring of industrial machinery, with a capacity for continuous learning. An innovative method of combined analysis is being developed based on a specific local model for each piece of machinery and a general model located in the overall information management system, to accumulate in the platform the knowledge generated by each of the machines. In the project, multivariate analysis technologies based on artificial intelligence will be used to detect and identify characterised and non-characterised (new) anomalies, in order to act on and accumulate knowledge generated during the useful life of the machines.
The project will end in 2018 and has been jointly funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness and the European Union, as part of the state research, development and innovation programme aimed at Challenges of Society.
The activity of MAPRO is focused on the design and manufacture of test equipment and assembly lines for the main manufacturers of automobile components and for other industrial sectors.
