This is a fantastic opportunity to work with Alfa Laval, a world's leader and pioneer in producing separator machines. During the project, you will have this opportunity to gain access to real-life industrial IoT data and gain first-hand experience with such kind of valuable data.

This project aims to investigate the application of anomaly detection methods from multiple sensor time series from separator machines. The separators purify oil and water supplies onboard marine vessels.

It is not trivial to apply anomaly detection methods designed for tabular data to time series, due to special property of time series. The main objective of this project is to evaluate the usefulness of anomaly detection methods to industrial IoT time series in Alfa Laval AB, in particular investigation of two scenarios: feature extraction (e.g. tsfresh) + ensemble methods (e.g., isolation forest) vs. Recurrent Neural Networks (e.g., LSTM).
