Wireless Brake and Tire Monitoring System
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Impact Technologies, in cooperation with Crane Aerospace and Electronics, proposes an end to end wireless solution for aircraft brake and tire monitoring. The proposed system will serve to reduce safety risks and increase efficiency during flight and ground testing by providing long-range wireless transmission of tire temperature, tire pressure, and brake temperature. The system will provide intelligent data fusion and diagnostic capability in support of automating the brake and tire go / no go for test decision. Key tasks of this Phase I effort include: 1) Development of a communication schema to support distributed smart sensor nodes; 2) Adapt currently available sensing hardware to meet AF range and resolution requirements; 3) Develop data fusion and processing algorithms to transform recorded data into knowledge usable by test operators in support the tire and brake go / no go for test decision; 4) Development of a tablet PC based handheld recording and display device along with a user interface capable of being operated without the use of cumbersome pointing devices or keyboards. A prototype system will be created and sensing, storage, and communications will be demonstrated within a prototype hardware platform.
