Paper Abstract

Increasing demands for product safety and reliability requires the development and implementation of innovative condition monitoring mechanisms that are an integral part of the system to be monitored. Since an advanced condition monitoring system often consists of a variety of sensing, controlling, and actuating components, their effective and efficient integration requires the application of mechatronic design principles to achieve the desired synergy. This paper presents several aspects related to the design and implementation of a sensor-embedded mechatronic bearing, which can be used for the condition monitoring of various critical machine systems.
