Our goal was to create a prototype of a system that can detect faults in a machine and notify the system administrator for troubleshooting. We have used advanced technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT) and Augmented Reality to create this prototype. We hope to deploy this system once it is industry ready as it can be very useful in the ESDM sector for failure detection. We would also like to thank IESA for providing us with a platform such as Vision Summit to set our plans into motion. This was one of the best organised hackathons and we are happy to have been a part of it.”. The team comprised of Aakash Jain and Suresh Kumar as well.
