PreSense – AI-based Predictive Maintenance at SENEC

In order to improve product quality, SENEC GmbH has launched a project to establish a Predictive maintenance system. Based on frequently repeating failure patterns and reasons for and reasons for failure in electricity storage systems, the underlying assumption is that these patterns can be predicted using statistical analysis and AI methods, these patterns can be predicted to a certain extent. In order to fully undertake this research, SENEC is collaborating with IT-Sonix GmbH together.
In the presentation we would like to introduce the technical approach and inform about the current status of the project.
