Low cost, wireless vibration monitoring system based on rfid/mems and bluetooth technologies

Objective

In today's highly competitive market place, the costs associated with unexpected machine failure can have a drastic effect on a company. There is a need for monitoring the condition of rotating machinery within process plants including pumps, gearboxes and motors to carry out preventative maintenance of the plant at a cost that does not represent a major barrier for the uptake of the benefits of condition monitoring in SME's.

The aim of the proposed project is to investigate, develop and validate a new, low cost, wireless prototype vibration sensor suitable for use as a stand-alone device or incorporated within a centralized control system. The proposal is based on the novel integration of radio frequency identification (RFID) /microelectromechanichal systems (MEMS ) together with wireless communication technology in industrial applications, such as Bluetooth.
