In recent years, the latest maintenance modelling techniques that adopt the data-based method, such as machine learning (ML), have brought about a broad range of useful applications. One of the major challenges in the automotive industry is the early detection of component failure for quick response, proper action, and minimizing maintenance costs. A vital component of an automobile system is an air pressure system (APS). Failure of APS without adequate and quick responses may lead to high maintenance costs, loss of lives, and component damages. This paper addresses classification problem where we detect whether a fault does or does not belong to APS. If a failure occurs in APS, it is classified as positive class; otherwise, it is classified as negative class. Hence, in this paper, we propose broad embedded logistic regression (BELR). The proposed BELR is applied to predict APS failure. It combines a broad learning system (BLS) and logistic regression (LogR) classifier as a fusion model. The proposed approach capitalizes on the strength of BLS and LogR for a better APS failure prediction. Additionally, we employ the BLS’s feature-mapped nodes for extracting features from the input data. Additionally, we use the enhancement nodes of the BLS to enhance the features from feature-mapped nodes. Hence, we have features that can assist LogR for better classification performances, even when the data is skewed to the positive class or negative class. Furthermore, to prevent the curse of dimensionality, a common problem with high-dimensional data sets, we utilize principal component analysis (PCA) to reduce the data dimension. We validate the proposed BELR using the APS data set and compare the results with the other robust machine learning classifiers. The commonly used evaluation metrics, namely Recall, Precision, an F1-score, to evaluate the model performance. From the results, we validate that performance of the proposed BELR.
