3Dsignals is using ultrasonic sensors and deep learning technology to find mechanical problems in cars before they happen. Based in Israel, the startup has the potential to revolutionize the automotive industry.

The diagnostic tool is supposed to detect when breakdowns will happen before they actually occur. The deep learning capabilities and wireless ultrasonic sensors create audio technology that can identify when mechanics do not sound normal. The anomalies can suggest patterns of failure, allowing users to react faster. This predictive system will increase efficiency by reducing human error and decreasing the severity of damage.

This technology is a different example of how automation is being used in vehicles. Driverless cars and automated fleets of taxis are also becoming increasingly common.
