This work proposes a fault detection architecture for vehicle embedded sensors, allowing to deal with both system nonlinearity and environmental disturbances and degradations. The proposed method uses analytical redundancy and a nonlinear transformation to generate the residual value allowing the fault detection. A strategy dedicated to the optimization of the detection parameters choice is also developed.
