Cloud-based analysis + machine learning allows trucks on the Preteckt network learn from each other by sharing and comparing early symptoms of failure. When one truck experiences a maintenance issue, it trains the rest of the trucks on our network to recognize the symptoms that predict that failure.

Dashboard with Brains

Preteckt’s smart dashboard lets you view at a glance which truck is right for the job, and which needs servicing. Then follow up with Preteckt’s real-time data viewer. No more struggling to get feedback from the driver.

I Wish My Car Had Predictive Maintenance Technology

By Chris Fields on November 20, 2017

What value does Predictive Maintenance really offer? There are many skeptics who believe it’s just smoke and mirrors. Allow me, a guy who knows nothing about technology, to tell you why I wish I had predictive maintenance on my car. Growing up, we always had clunkers or junkers, whichever you prefer to call them, but these were old cars that broke down all the time. I had to learn early how to change tires, brakes, spark plugs, batteries, and even certain hoses.

Industry 4.0, Context Is King

By The Preteckt Team on November 15, 2017

Preteckt CEO and Co-founder Ken Sills, recently wrote about Industry 4.0 on LinkedIn. It’s a well written piece on how machine learning (ML) and predictive maintenance (PdM) are actually already all around us. Here is a preview… Your heart rate and blood pressure depend on so many factors, but those factors are measurable. And these days, with essentially free data storage and compute capacity, there is every reason to be building a deep context using every measurement possible.

Maintenance & Autonomous Vehicles

By The Preteckt Team on November 8, 2017

Earlier this year Preteckt COO & Cofounder, Sasha Kucharczyk wrote an article for readwrite.com about the major problems with autonomous vehicles. In the piece he breaks down 2 issues and then goes on to explain the role of artificial intelligence in predicting maintenance. Here is a snippet. “The new AI for maintenance The concept of predicting breakdowns is nothing new. People have been using statistics for decades to calculate mean-time-to-failure – it is how the automotive industry came up with replacing parts based on number of miles driven.

Dashboard Conversations

By Brad Montgomery on November 6, 2017

We’re happy to announce a new feature that we’re calling Dashboard Conversations. Alerts on the Preteckt dashboard have included notes from Jeremy, our Master Cyber Mechanic, for a while now. Many of you have have seen his comments that help remotely diagnose problems before they become costly breakdowns, and several of you have used this feature to engage in valuable conversations. Unfortunately, the original version of this feature made conversations somewhat difficult, and you let us know.
