Porsche is undoubtedly one of the most high-tech car companies out there. The Stuttgart brand has got tech hubs worldwide that serve as incubators for start-ups at the cutting edge.

This latest development is really taking things a step further. According to Porsche, it’s developed an artificial intelligence platform that recognizes noises and vibrations to determine potential problems in production equipment.

  This latest development stems from a collaboration with the start-up iNDTact and the Porsche Design Lab in Berlin. The system recognizes problems through anomalies in vibrations and reports them.

Porsche says that vibrations in each vehicle are as unique as a human fingerprint, which allows the system to detect even the smallest change in the frequency and interpret that as a potential threat. Porsche is calling it an artificial neural network known as Production 4.0.

It’s part of the manufacturer’s wider Industry 4.0 program. It will involve servicing machines proactively in order to minimize their downtime. Read more from thedrive.com…
