CARFIT joins NVIDIA Inception Program to add machine learning based predictive maintenance for cars
Portland, OR. – Jan. 24, 2018 – CARFIT today announced it has joined the NVIDIA Inception program, which is designed to nurture startups revolutionizing industries with advancements in AI and data sciences. AI startup in vibration-based predictive maintenance for cars, CARFIT will use NVIDIA® DRIVE series to offer an NVH analysis module software for autonomous vehicles. CARFIT leverages NVIDIA onboard compute to run Machine Learning for real time issue detection on tires, wheels, shocks and brakes.
CARFIT’s core technology uses machine learning to leverage the car vibration NVH science [Noise Vibration Harshness – the science about vibrations and noises in vehicles] to identify wear and potential failures of the wearing parts of the driving gears of a vehicle. The result is an easy-to-use software module that adds NVH computing capacities and access to a NVH knowledge base to identify abnormal vibrations.
“We are thrilled to announce that CARFIT has joined the NVIDIA Inception program. The collaboration with NVIDIA gives us access to the technical knowledge and hardware that is necessary for accelerating our development of cutting-edge products based on NVH processing with high computing needs.” – Henri-Nicolas OLIVIER, CEO CARFIT, adding: “Autonomous cars will need “autonomous maintenance” or predictive diagnostics to guarantee its users service level agreements in safety and comfort. CARFIT is growing up to serve this need. “
CARFIT is currently delivering a first aftermarket solution that addresses needs of cars in circulation. While building up its predictive maintenance knowledge base, CARFIT prepares a Machine-Learning-powered solution to uniquely monitor wearing parts such as tires, wheels, shocks and brakes of autonomous cars.
