Short summary
This paper presents a novel method for the detection of sensor defects. Here, the consistency between measurements of sensor groups are utilized for this method. The sensor groups are pre-determined by the structure of an existing sensor fusion algorithm, which is in turn used to determine the health of a monitored system (e.g. a machine). Defect detection results of the presented method for different test cases and the method's capability to detect a number of typical sensor defects are shown.
