Feature Engineering for Fault Detection using Wavelet Scattering


In this webinar, you will learn how the MathWorks team used iterative feature engineering techniques to design a fault detection application for predictive maintenance. Using a hydraulic rock drill dataset of time series data, we will explore feature engineering for classifying a variety of fault types. We will start by assessing a broad set of statistical features, and then apply wavelet scattering to increase the accuracy of our prediction based on techniques from literature. Finally, we will refine the feature set using a combination of unsupervised techniques and well-established feature ranking methods.

This webinar will be relevant to anyone interested in designing accurate fault detection and predictive maintenance algorithms from time series sensor data. 


Highlights include:

  • Accessing and organizing data
  • Iterative feature engineering from general purpose statistical features through wavelet scattering.
  • Unsupervised clustering techniques for feature selection
  • Training classification models using low-code apps
  • Deploying algorithms to the edge and cloud

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
