PHM tool is model-based user interface which the user creates his system using various mechanical and electrical equipment’s, but can also calculates the reliability, failure rate and probability of task completion (POTC) of the created system. In addition, the PHM Tool offers the user the ability to formulate his own components and add them to the system. PHM Tool can also work with a real robot. Data from the sensors on the real robot are published via ROS topics. By subscribing to these topics in the PHM Tool, the system’s failure rate, reliability and POTC values are calculated together with the data which is obtained from the sensors.
About the Prognostic and Health Management (PHM) Tool
Basically 2 different operations are performed in the PHM Tool:
- Robot Configuration
- System Analysis and Monitoring
Robot configuration operations are performed in “Robot Configuration Setup” tab. The flowchart of the operations performed on the “Robot Configuration Setup” tab is shown in Figure 1..
