A new model for a retrofit system must be developed that enables ease of reconfiguration and customer-driven selection of sensing priorities. To address this challenge, this project assembled a strong multi-disciplinary team including Georgia Tech, Mazak, Cisco Systems, ITAMCO and Caterpillar. The team has expertise in the requisite technological areas that include manufacturing sensing and analytics, machine tool manufacture, and platforms for industrial network security and wireless communications. The team proposed development of a reconfigurable retrofit kit RRK for legacy equipment platforms that provides for low per machine implementation cost less than 1000, flexibility in sensor package implementation and state-of-the-art network security.
