Accelerometers and vibration sensors are having their day. As prices have come down drastically, we are seeing more and more companies instrumenting all kinds of devices and equipment. Industrial, automotive and consumer products use cases are proliferating almost as fast as startups with “AI” in their names.
We’re an AI company, so people always ask about our algorithms. If we could get a dollar for every time we’re asked about which flavor of machine learning we use –convolutional neural nets, K-means, or whatever – we would never need another dollar of VC investment ever again.
Industrial controls — particularly “Condition Monitoring” systems — are increasingly supported by sophisticated sensors and data analysis tools. Using artificial intelligence (AI) for data classification and analysis, these tools do not simply add intelligence to IoT sensors.
Over the last few years, as sensor and MCU prices plummeted and shipped volumes have gone thru the roof, more and more companies have tried to take advantage by adding sensor-driven embedded AI to their products.
Machine learning on high-sample-rate sensor data is different. For a lot of reasons. The outcomes can be very powerful – just look at the proliferation of “smart” devices and the things they can do. But the process that creates the “smarts” is fundamentally different than the way most engineers are used to working.

We all know what a sensor is, right?
A sensor makes “sense” of physical property — it turns something about the physical world into data upon which a system can act. Traditionally, sensors have filled well defined, single-purpose roles: A thermostat, a pressure switch, a motion detector, an oxygen sensor, a knock detector, a smoke detector, a voltage arrestor.
At Reality AI we see a lot of machine learning projects that have failed to get results, or are on the edge of going off the rails. Often, our tools and structured approach can help, but sometimes not.
