The objective of this project is to develop an integrated multi-sensor framework for process control and other industrial CIM applications, bringing together new generations of knowledge-based systems, control techniques and intelligent sensors.
The work programme will address a number of practical measurement and control problems covering a range of variables, stretching from the standard areas of pressure, flow, temperature and chemical measurement, to new systems coping, for example, with object recognition or tactile information.
The aim is to develop validated prototype systems for four industrial demonstrators, meeting technical requirements for new sensing systems, fault detection and diagnosis, using knowledge-based systems, multi-variable control and a standardised fieldbus system.
The following demonstrators will be established:
A considerable number of hardware and software products are expected to result from the project, and plans for their exploitation are being given a high priority by the project partners.
