Cars are learning to hear like humans and self-diagnose problems

Hear that? Your #car just did - ! 🚗 #iot #ai

  • Just like humans identify whether or not there is a problem with the car by hearing odd sounds coming from the engine or by hearing creaking sounds, cars can identify as well.
  • Their software can give cars the ability to diagnose problems themselves by simply hearing anomalous sounds coming from the car and/or the environment.
  • They are testing the tech by providing it with many sounds that come from their cars.
  • This can be a huge boost as one of the important factors of customer dissatisfaction is odd noises coming from a car and not being able to locate the problem.
  • Other than diagnosing problems, this tech can also be used to help cars in perceiving their environment.

Intelligent machines are not only trying to learn and act like humans, they are beginning to sense their environment like them as well. Latest among them are cars that are getting a sense of hearing that would allow them to enhance their intelligence level by perceiving their environment like humans do.
