Speech Title: Data-driven Train Condition Recognition

Abstract: Real time monitoring of the running status of train and detecting their hidden failures accurately have great significance. Train bogie is an important part to guarantee the safe operation of High Speed Train (HST) and the comfort of passengers. The main techniques for recognizing conditions of HST are to collect the vibration signals by mounting sensors, analyze data features and build fault diagnosis model. Deep learning, ensemble learning and multi-view learning have attracted considerable attention in recent years. In this talk, I will discuss train condition recognition with Deep Belief Networks (DBNs), Multi-view Clustering Ensemble, Multi-view Classification Ensemble, and etc.
