Application of FURIA for Finding the Faults in a Hydraulic Brake System Using a Vibration Analysis through a Machine Learning Approach



Alamelu Manghai T. M Jegadeeshwaran R


Vibration-based continuous monitoring system for fault diagnosis of automobile hydraulic brake system is presented in this study. This study uses a machine learning approach for the fault diagnosis study. A hydraulic brake system test rig was fabricated. The vibration signals were acquired from the brake system under different simulated fault conditions using a piezoelectric transducer. The histogram features were extracted from the acquired vibration signals. The feature selection process was carried out using a decision tree. The selected features were classified using fuzzy unordered rule induction algorithm (FURIA) and Repeated Incremental Pruning to Produce Error Reduction (RIPPER) algorithm. The classification results of both algorithms for fault diagnosis of a hydraulic brake system were presented. Compared to RIPPER and J48 decision tree, the FURIA performs better and produced 98.73 % as the classification accuracy.
