This paper presents a novel application of neural networks to a vexing practical problem in the automotive industry. By government regulations, automobiles are required to be equipped with instrumentation to detect engine misfires and to alert the driver whenever the misfire rate has the potential to affect the health of emission control systems. A relevant model for the powertrain dynamics is developed in this paper as well as an explanation of the instrumentation. The basis for using a neural network to detect these misfires is explained and experimental system performance data (including error rates) are given. It is shown in this paper that the present method has the potential to meet the government mandated requirements.
