Modelling and Methodologies for Enterprise Integration: by Peter Bernus, Laszlo Nemes (auth.), Peter Bernus, Laszlo PDF

Firm integration and company engineering has turn into a focus of discussions in the past few years with energetic contribution of many disciplines. .. The evolution from the idea that of CAD/CAM, via CIM to the built-in company relies at the assumption that the built-in firm can (and should still) be engineered simply as any advanced approach can.

The main focus of this research is to develop new actuator devices that cover the applications for which conventional actuators are not suitable; piezoelectric actuators could provide fast, zero backlash, silent (gearless), and energy-efficient actuation in a compact body. Piezoelectric materials are known to have two major piezoelectric effects that make them useful for both actuation and sensing [18, 19, 21, 25, 28]. A piezoelectric material generates electric charges on its surfaces when stress is applied.

We derive then the autocalibration procedure in the context of maximum likelihood estimate and we provide examples of calibrations. For each calibrated sensor, we also illustrate how to derive the accuracy on the estimated parameters through the covariance analysis and how to compute the angles between the sensing axes of the sensor. In the conclusion, we summarize the main aspects involved in the autocalibration of MEMS accelerometers. 1 Introduction The advent of microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology has allowed miniaturized, high performance and cheap accelerometers to be built using a variety of different approaches [1–3].
