The parallel hybrid models of different deep neural networks architectures are the most promising approaches for remaining useful life (RUL) estimation. In light of that, this paper introduces for the first time in the literature a new parallel hybrid deep neural network (DNN) solution for RUL estimation, named as the Noisy Multipath Parallel Hybrid Model for Remaining Useful Life Estimation (NMPM). The proposed framework comprises of three parallel paths, the first one utilizes a noisy Bidirectional Long-short term memory (BLSTM) that used for extracting temporal features and learning the dependencies of sequence data in two directions, forward and backward, which can benefit completely from the input data. While the second parallel path employs noisy multilayer perceptron (MLP) that consists of three layers to extract different class of features. The third parallel path utilizes noisy convolutional neural networks (CNN) to extract another class of features. The concatenated output of the previous parallel paths is then fed into a noisy fusion center (NFC) to predict the RLU. The NMPM has been trained based on a noisy training to enhance the generalization behavior, as well as strengthen the model accuracy and robustness. The NMPM framework is tested and evaluated by using CMAPSS dataset provided by NASA.
