Self diagnosis and repair system

  1. Nov 20, 2012 #1
    can we have a system in which the machine is able to diagnosis the fault yet to come in minutes and suggest as well as assist the user to rectify it in while the machine is working. for example in an engine when the dirt sticks in jet of carburetor then a pressurized air is used to remove it or a new organic chemical which can flush out the dirt in the spark plug easily.

    If you are willing to pay for it, you can design a machine to take care of most of the problems you can forsee. I don't think it would be cost-effective, but it is theoretically possible. Even machines that can circumvent flaws in their own logic circuitry are possible, but again, expensive, through redundancy.
