Actia Corp. announced it is making its Pattern Recognition technology for performance-based diagnostics available to North American-based engine makers.

The company said Pattern Recognition results in extremely smart diagnostics that enable prognostic maintenance. The technology “works by learning and creating a reference database for normal and common failures, followed by analysis and diagnosis of real-time failure.”

If adopted by an engine maker, the technology can provide prognostics by being embedded as an on-board diagnostic solution or integrated into a service tool.

Actia said Pattern Recognition technology is capable of detecting performance degradation in a variety of systems not monitored directly by an engine ECU, such as air intake, fuel systems, and some EGR systems.
