Vision based condition monitoring of gear contacts

Condition monitoring - Djordy Van Maele

Gears are widely used in many different applications. Their condition is oftenly monitored using indirect measurements (vibrations, temperature, oil analysis) or periodic visual inspection. However, if these current systems could be aided by a real-time automated vision system, gear defects could be detected much earlier on. This early detection is one of the cornerstones for applications of gears in industries such as wind energy.
