Large Engines – Big Data: LEC Data Challenge 

Large Engines – Big Data: hunt down the fault at the first LEC Data Challenge!

The LEC focuses on developing environmentally sound, efficient and robust large engines for sustainable transport and energy solutions.

With our first LEC Data Challenge, we would like to encourage data-enthusiastic students and practitioners from various disciplines to develop data-based fault detection methods that are best suited for our large engine applications. To this end, a training data set is provided, a second test data set contains multiple faults. The goal is to find as many as possible. The data challenge ranking will be based on the number of correctly classified points (faulty or fault-free). Thus, it is important not to identify fault-free records as faulty or vice versa.


Participation in the Challenge is possible from May 1 (earliest data release) to August 19, 2019.

The top five teams will be invited to present their contributions at the 17th symposium “The Working Process of the Internal Combustion Engine” focusing on sustainable Mobility, Transport and Power Generation in Graz on Thursday, September 26 – Friday, September 27, 2019.
The three best solutions selected by an expert jury will receive attractive prize money:
1st place: EUR 3.000,-
2nd place: EUR 2.000,-
3rd place: EUR 1.000,-

We wish you all the best in hunting for faults!
