Vibration as predictive maintenance monitoring

Here you find the details for the internship named "Vibration as predictive maintenance monitoring" in the company Psicontrol.

Name: Vibration as predictive maintenance monitoring
Company: Psicontrol

The use of specific sensors for lifetime and predictive maintenance monitoring is increasing in the market. An example is a vibration sensor that detects the wear of bearings, mechanical stress, etc. As Picanol’s weaving machines are inherently highly susceptible to vibrations, they represent a perfect case study for this subject.
The goal is to look for a suitable vibration sensor and let it interface with a microcontroller. The collected data can then be post-processed to determine the normal operation. An anomaly in this pattern can then be seen as a possible wear-out of one of the mechanical/moving parts.

Your task
- Market study of possible vibration sensors.
- Build a test setup.
- Data analysis on measurements.
- Verify that data is trustworthy.
- Detect anomalies.
