I agree, bobjengr. The smart bearings are amazing, and serve as a great example of how traditional mechanical products can benefit from the addition of electronics. This is one more example of why future mechanical engineers need a cross-disciplinary education.

 Very interesting post Lauren.  I am blown away be the SKF information.  This is truly forward thinking on their part.  One of the components of my job is to quantify component MTTF (mean time to failure) and MTBF (mean time between failure).  These bearings would be great indicators of bearing "status" and provide huge value-added for maintenance personnel and manufacturing engineers.  Again--excellent post.

The ability to use HMIs with gesture controls is definitely an up and coming area for human machine interfaces.

I agree, this is impressive, but I would be more impressed if SKF had included even one image of the actual hardware so we could get a feel for size and volume necessary to accomodate it.  The link to SKF offers no additional information unforunately.

Forward-Looking Monitoring

Especially impressed by the forward-looking bearing monitoring.  From the article, microscopic bearing damage can be detected immediately as it occurs (instead of being detected after bearing damage escalates into vibration and temperature issues).  I would imagine that many mission-critical applications could use this new technology to improve bearing performance, reliability and up-time.

Some cars are more reliable than others, but even the vehicles at the bottom of this year’s Consumer Reports reliability survey are vastly better than those of 20 years ago in the key areas of powertrain and hardware, experts said this week.
While risk management sounds like one activity, in order to be conducted effectively, it must be broken down into three sub-components: risk assessment, risk monitoring, and response planning.
Many of the materials in this slideshow are resins or elastomers, plus reinforced materials, styrenics, and PLA masterbatches. Applications range from automotive and aerospace to industrial, consumer electronics and wearables, consumer goods, medical and healthcare, as well as sporting goods, and materials for protecting food and beverages.
In a speech at China's National People’s Congress in Beijing this month, Premier Li Keqiang laid out plans to revamp the country's manufacturing infrastructure with advanced technology.
While many larger companies are still reluctant to rely on wireless networks to transmit important information in industrial settings, there is an increasing acceptance rate of the newer, more robust wireless options that are now available.
