CogniSense reduces machine downtime through remote system-level monitoring

Posted by Imperial InnovationsResponsive · Patents for licensing · United Kingdom

Summary of the technology

The effective remote monitoring of rotating equipment such as HVAC systems or conveyor belts is valuable to ensure reduced downtime and peak operating efficiency. Researchers from Imperial College have developed CogniSense; an IoT device that can monitor machine state-of-health accurately, for any mechanism exhibiting cyclical motion. By transmitting a radio signal and detecting the response, a signal corresponding to the motion of the distinct machine components (e.g. gears and bearings) can be captured and analysed. CogniSense even works through walls, and a single device can be used to monitor multiple machines (rather than requiring individual on-board mounting like other existing systems).
