Multi-Sensor Architecture for Intelligent Electromechanical Actuators

By Ganesh Krishnamoorthy and Delbert Tesar


A versatile, actuator-based open machine architecture is needed to meet the increasing performance demands of modern mechanical systems. Actuators in such systems must have a complete knowledge of operating characteristics, with the ability to reconfigure resources to adapt to different conditions or user-choices.This generality of response is termed as intelligence. To achieve this objective, an Electro Mechanical Actuator Architecture (EMAA) is proposed, based on self-contained, intelligent electromechanical actuator modules with standardized interfaces, complemented with a multi-sensor architecture and a novel criteria-based decisionmaking paradigm based on performance maps
