SMART SENSOR FOR EARLY FAULT DETECTION IN INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY

The Motion Control and Industrial Applications (MCIA UPC) centre, which is led by PhD. Luis Romeral, together with other European centres and companies, has developed a sensor based on acoustic emissions that is self-powered, smart and capable of automatically establishing a wireless network that helps in the control and maintenance of rotating machinery.

This technology has been developed as part of the Mosycousis European project, which aims to develop a system for monitoring mechanical elements for the early detection of faults in industrial machinery. This project is an example of European public-private collaboration to increase the competitiveness of SMEs.
