OptiMon: Reliable wireless monitoring for industry

Condition and energy monitoring of industrial assets by means of sensor systems has become widespread in recent years. Current systems are mostly wired, and thus installation can be difficult, inflexible, and costly. In addition, wired condition monitoring is not feasible in some cases (e.g., with moving parts), and harsh environments pose a threat for present technologies (vulnerable cables and connectors). Wireless condition monitoring is flexible but has challenges with respect…
