Abstract : This paper empirically investigate the design of a fault detection mechanism based on Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) neural network. Given an equation based model that approximate the behavior of aircraft ailerons, the fault detector aims at predicting the state of aircraft: the normal state for which no failure are observed, or four different failure states, e.g. a delay changes. This is achieved by collecting a limited amount of command and responses data by varying the parameters of the aileron model, such that a LSTM network is used to predict the state of the aircraft of sequence of the pair commands/responses. In this empirical study we empirically demonstrated LSTM networks can be a promising approach for fault detection, and achieve reasonable performances despite a limited amount of data, in particular avoiding overfitting of the model.
