Faulty automotive systems significantly degrade the performance and efficiency of vehicles, and oftentimes are the major contributors of vehicle breakdown; they result in large expenditures for repair and maintenance. Therefore, intelligent vehicle health-monitoring schemes are needed for effective fault diagnosis in automotive systems. Previously, we developed a datadriven approach using a data reduction technique, coupled with a variety of classifiers, for fault diagnosis in automotive

Specifically, we develop three novel classifier fusion approaches: class-specific Bayesian fusion, joint optimization of fusion center and of individual classifiers, and dynamic fusion. We evaluate the efficacies of these fusion approaches on an automotive engine data. The results demonstrate that dynamic fusion and joint optimization, and class-specific Bayesian fusion outperform traditional fusion approaches. We also show that learning the parameters of individual classifiers as part of the fusion architecture can provide better classification performance.
