Planning of test bed for visualized real time monitoring of components via integrated fiber optics

Reference number 2018-00485
Coordinator RISE IVF AB - Avdelningen för Tillverkning
Funding from Vinnova SEK 436 976
Project duration April 2018 - February 2019
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The aim of this project was to plan the setting up of a test environment (test bed) for digitalized real time monitoring of components fabricated by additive manufacturing (AM) based on results from the ongoing project "Connectivity and Health Monitoring of 3D-printed Components in Extreme Conditions (CoHM-3D)" (Vinnova 2017-01950). The test environment should include metal, ceramic and plastic components where AM enables integration of fiber optic sensors for monitoring of thermal and/or mechanical loads which can then be visualized in real time using augmented reality (AR).

Expected results and effects

The project has resulted in planning support for the setting up of a future test environment which combines AM, sensor integration and augmented reality. including identification of potential users, pre-requisites and demands for a physical and virtual test environment as well as an exploitation strategy.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been carried out by RISE IVF AB, with material and AM competence, and RISE Acreo AB, with competence in fiber optics and data management, after initial discussions with Proximion, XMReality and the project partners in CoHM-3D. The project was executed in four segments: i) inventory of industrial needs, ii) inventory of competences, iii) planning of physical and virtual test environment, and iv) business modell for test environment.
