- The overall objective of this project is to develop sensor-integrated `intelligent` diamond wheels for grinding ceramics. Such wheels will be `smart` enough to monitor and supervise both the wheel preparation and grinding processes without the need to instrument the machine tool. Intelligent wheels will utilize re-useable cores integrated with two types of sensors: acoustic emission (AE) and dynamic force transducers. Signals from the sensors will be transmitted from a rotating wheel to a receiver by telemetry. Intelligent wheels will be `trained` to recognize distinct characteristics associated with truing, dressing and grinding.
