A Primer for tinyML Predictive Maintenance: Input and Model Optimisation

Emil Njor, Jan Madsen, Xenofon Fafoutis


  In this paper, we investigate techniques used to optimise tinyML based Predictive Maintenance (PdM). We first describe PdM and tinyML and how they can provide an alternative to cloud-based PdM. We present the background behind deploying PdM using tinyML, including commonly used libraries, hardware, datasets and models. Furthermore, we show known techniques for optimising tinyML models. We argue that an optimisation of the entire tinyML pipeline, not just the actual models, is required to deploy tinyML based PdM in an industrial setting. To provide an example, we create a tinyML model and provide early results of optimising the input given to the model.
