Conference Paper
Full-text available
In diesem Beitrag wird die Entwicklung einer kostengünstigen Alternative zu hochpreisigen 3D-Messsystemen vorgestellt. Teure Systemkomponenten und leistungsfähige HardwareLösungen erhöhen den Preis von Systemen für die hochpräzise, optische Messung dreidimensionaler (3D) Oberflächentopologien. Das Ziel dieses Projekts besteht darin, erschwingliche...
Conference Paper
In this paper the development of a low-cost alternative to high-priced 3D measurement systems is presented. Expensive system components or cutting-edge hardware solutions increase the price of measurement systems for three-dimensional (3D) optical surface topology. The purpose of this project is to build affordable optical surface topology measurem...

Power supply to large complexes of building, e.g. hospitals, shopping malls or recreation centers, requires several forms of energy as electricity, heating, cooling and air conditioning. Due to public stimuli and economic considerations more and more building operators use a mix of energy sources and install their own power generation equipment. In...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Design considering functional consistency and failure-free interoperability of functional entities is crucial for safety and reliability of mechatronic systems. Diverse tools are necessary to develop products consisting of heterogeneous hardware and software. To avoid expensive product tests or failed products, test and verification of functional c...
Thesis
Dieses Buch wendet sich hauptsächlich an Bachelor- und Masterstudenten sowie Doktoranden der Ingenieurwissenschaften, die sich mit der Thematik der Planung, Konzeption und Entwicklung informationsverarbeitender Komponenten in mechatronischen Systemen auseinandersetzen. Darüber hinaus ist das Buch als Nachschlagewerk für Entwickler, Wissenschaftler...
Conference Paper

New technologies, such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Parking, Lane Keeping Assistance, etc.) lead to a cooperation of human and machine and thus require manual/automatic transfer (MAT). Similar situations for human-machine interaction can be found in robotics and process engineering. Therefore, the primar...
Conference Paper
Due to modern trends in the development of mechatronic systems, requirements on developers are changing. Beside the classical approaches to control design, engineers need competence in fields like integration of heterogeneous systems, communication between different components, interoperation between various software components, and simulation of c...
Conference Paper
Der Beitrag stellt eine neue Methode zur Erstellung eines Antriebsverbundsystems vor, in dem dezentral gesteuerte Antriebe unter der Voraussetzung der Kollisionsfreiheit eingesetzt werden. Zunächst wird die Problemstellung erläutert, die zur Entwicklung der Methode führte. Die entwickelte Vorgehensweise wird dargestellt und anhand eines typisches A...
Conference Paper

Software design in terms of functional structuring and interoperability of functional entities is crucial for safety and reliability of mechatronic systems. Several approaches to system design are utilized by programming groups and tool providers based on experience and history. There is no generally proofed approach. In process automation by contr...
Conference Paper
In this paper a new approach to modeling and optimization of mechatronic systems resp. components of systems is presented. The described methods are applicable in cases where, due to a high complexity of the model, conventional approaches of identification and optimization are not utilizable. This applies to systems consisting of a large number of...

This contribution deals with an optimization procedure for the manufacturing of glass items. A glass forming machine is equipped with a feeder used for transport, portioning and conditioning of the glass melt. Several measuring points and actuators are installed to determine and influence the condition of the glass. The determination of a set of ac...
Conference Paper
Elektromagnete werden als Aktoren in vielen Bereichen der Technik eingesetzt. In mechatronischen Systemen im Maschinen- und Fahrzeugbau werden sie vorwiegend zum Schalten zwischen diskreten Zuständen verwendet. Die steigenden Anforderungen hinsichtlich der Miniaturisierung und einer kompakten Bauweise führen dazu, dass die zu entwickelnden Schaltei...
Conference Paper
Many mechanical structures of mechatronic systems suffer from unwanted vibrations. The present paper concerns vibration control of a Euler-Bernoulli beam using piezo-ceramic actuators. The intention is to eliminate the steady state motion at a prescribed location in a continuous system like a beam under the influence of an external harmonic excitat...
Article
The new PYROEXPERT optimization system ensures greater cost-effectiveness of kiln operation by combining expert technology and process modelling. Examples are used to explain the advanced control concept and the operator interface with graphic configuration based on modern hardware and software components. Illustrations are given of the transparenc...

Project
In this project, a cost-effective sensor is developed, which is based on structured light projection. The focus is not on high accuracy but on cost effective, flexible applicability e.g. in manufacturing plants. Current hardware such as single board computers and micro projectors are used.
