Advitech’s AiCoustics technology makes SentineX the first continuous environmental monitoring system to use artificial intelligence to automate noise recognition in mining and other industrial environments.
Designed to minimise the impacts of misclassified industrial noise, the AiCoustics technology can help improve productivity by reducing unnecessary actions in response to extraneous noise. Continuous noise source identification is achieved in real time, enabling an effective and appropriate response to identified noises.
Using the SentineX remote monitoring and reporting platform, machine learning is used to evaluate noise data and identify its source. The AiCoustics software is able to ‘learn’ the composition of noise sources in an environment, and differentiate between environmental and manufactured noise.
Recent research suggests that the performance of the AiCoustics system is comparable to that of a human listener. Use of the technology ensures that real-time monitoring data is ‘listened to’ continuously – relieving staff from this burden and freeing up their valuable time for other complex tasks.
Initially developed for use in the mining sector, the technology has a potential for broad application across many industrial environments. The core benefit of this automation technology is the:
- optimisation of real-time monitoring protocols, and
- productivity improvements through minimisation of ‘false alarms’ and unnecessary interventions.
Incorrect decisions based on incomplete data can carry significant costs in terms of lost productivity and high management overhead. While AiCoustics represents a new environmental management technology, its ultimate value proposition is one of cost savings through productivity improvement.
A strong collaboration between Advitech, Novecom and SMS, AiCoustics uses the latest AI technology to deliver the most efficient digital management systems and associated productivity gains in your business. Our experienced team work with the technology to ensure new noise sources can be learnt, and develop models to recognise noise sources in all environments. The system can operate either continuous and in real-time, or used offline to support the analysis of historical or campaign based continuous monitoring.
