Description Zirak is an Italian SME company, established in 2000, with an Italian headquarter and a Portuguese R&D lab, providing high quality Information Technology services and extensive support on automotive and IoT related topics, from architectural analysis and requirements management to implementation and validation of customized state-of-the-art solutions. Zirak has also contributed to several M2M projects (e.g. dynamometric key interfacing system, sanitification system for hospital unit spaces and electric bike-sharing platforms) designing an Internet-of-Things (IoT) platform for predictive logistics/maintenance in collaboration with major European R&D centers, actively contributing to predictive
maintenance projects in the context of Industry 4.0 programs.
The proposed thesis belongs to the IoT sector, which sees as its objectives:
1. the in-depth review of the current machine learning algorithm used by Zirak current predictive logistics platform (REDtag and PREMA), and the proposal of alternatives, based on state of the art technologies, with an eye to handling different type of data so as to satisfy the predictive maintenance use cases that will be identified with the company tutor (e.g. in the automotive industry) also based on data availability of the same data sets;
2. The best suited algorithm shall then be identified and prototyped, with training and application examples on new data sets;
3. Integration of the developed prototypes into our developed backend solution. Functionality testing and polishing;
4. Write documentation of the conducted review on the state of the art, the explored datasets and of the developed prototypes and the process of their integration into the backend solutions.
