Abstract

The large-scale application of industrial robots has created a demand for more intelligent and efficient health monitoring, which is more efficiently met by data-driven methods due to the surge in data and the advancement of computing technology. However, applying deep learning methods to industrial robots presents critical challenges such as data collection, application packaging, and the need for customized algorithms. To overcome these difficulties, this paper introduces a Platform of data-driven Health monitoring for IRs (PHIR) that provides a universal framework for manufacturers to utilize deep-learning-based approaches with minimal coding. Real-time data from multiple IRs and sensors is collected through a cloud-edge system and undergoes unified pre-processing to facilitate model training with a large volume of data. To enable code-free development, containerization technology is used to convert algorithms into operators, and users are provided with a process orchestration interface. Furthermore, algorithm research both for sudden fault and long-term aging failure detection is conducted and applied to the platform for industrial robot health monitoring experiments, by which the superiority of the proposed platform, in reality, is proven through positive results.
