As manufacturing industry is moving its steps towards a more digital, smart and flexible scenario, the changes required to achieve the expectations of the Industry 4.0 (I4.0) framework are numerous and extensive. Though, a general lack of understanding of how new technologies could be integrated and shall be implemented is present, limiting the rat...
Article
In this paper, three novel non-contact measurement systems for helicopter rotor blades, based on the 2D laser triangulation, the single camera and the stereo camera respectively, are designed and developed. The three measurement systems are applied to reconstruct the spatial position of the blade, and consequently its attitude angles. The measuring...

This paper presents an experimental characterization of an industrial, entry level piezoelectric device with open loop control, whose working principle is based on friction. As a consequence, the length of the single step is dependent on the applied load. Test results confirm the strong dependence existing between the stroke length and the resistan...

Chapter
This work illustrates the results obtained integrating the most recent laser scanner within machine tools for precision machining. The main aspects addressed include an in-depth analysis of currently available devices and their test on a specially adapted measuring machine, the use of the same axis that move the tool to achieve the scan and the use...

BRILLIANT aims to provide to SMEs turn-key solutions that they can leverage to autonomously replicate collaborative work cells in an intuitive and efficient way. BRILLIANT pursues two main objectives towards autonomous uptake of collaborative solutions by SMEs: 1) Developing smart, orchestrated and reconfigurable collaborative workcells to reduce adoption barriers of collaborative solutions for SMEs. For this reason, it introduces solutions for seamless connection of company equipment and digitisation of signals and parameters coming from legacy systems into a cloud platform. At the same time, it provides a stepwise procedure, with guidelines and quantifiable KPIs, for evaluating the potential of current industrial applications towards the adoption of collaborative approaches. 2) Combine flexibility and dexterity of humans with repeatability of cobots towards artisanal manufacturing 4.0.
