Questionnaire to Stakeholders and Collaborators for 17IND12 Met4FoF

Preparing for the second half of the project’s lifetime

Within its first 18 months, the EMPIR Metrology for the Factory of the Future (Met4FoF) project has developed the foundations for digital calibration and sensor network metrology. Now it is time to set the course for the second half of the project. 

In order to ensure that our developments and outputs are aligned as closely as possible to the needs of you and your customers, we would like you to answer the following questions. Not all the questions will be relevant to you – just leave blank those that do not apply.

Personal Data

Work package 1 “Calibration framework for digital sensors”

Partners in WP1 are focusing on digital-only accelerometer and pressure sensors, and on a type of MEMS temperature sensor for demonstrating the calibration concepts.
The “smart-up unit” developed in WP1 can incorporate MEMS sensors and combine their outputs with traceable time stamps.
WP1 is developing a mobile, calibrated reference fixture for one-touch MEMS characterization, testing and calibration.

Work package 2 “Mathematical framework for sensor networks”

In WP2, methods for taking into account, and mitigating, timing and synchronization issues in sensor networks are being developed.
The project team in WP2 is developing methods to identify and take advantage of (or reduce) redundancy in sensor networks.
In order to account for the different levels of uncertainty in a sensor network, WP2 is developing statistical methods and models in line with the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM).
All the above outputs from WP2 feeds into the development of a multi-agent system (MAS) that allows for a simple and straightforward implementation of sensor network monitoring and analysis.

Work package 3 “Testbeds”

With the testbed at ZeMA, the project is developing and evaluating methods for the impact of calibrated measurements and uncertainties on condition monitoring.
With the testbed at the Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) at Strathclyde (STRATH), the project is developing and evaluating methods for the impact of calibrated measurements and uncertainties on predicted output quality.
With the testbed at SPEA, the project is developing and evaluating methods for in situ calibration and for measurement traceability provision to ATE (automated test equipment) for MEMS testing and calibration.

Work package 4 “Impact”

The support of end-users, collaborators and stakeholders is at the core of our aims for creating impact with this project.
