Research on CANopen-Based Intelligent Sensor for Ship Monitoring System


Article Preview

In order to enhance reliability and maintainability of ship monitoring system, this paper proposed a CANopen protocol-based intelligent sensor which can simultaneously monitor rotational speed and temperature. With the presented intelligent sensor, the data collection and sensor control can be achieved easily and effectively. Experiments were conducted, which showed that the presented intelligent sensor could simplify the ship monitoring system, make the maintenance easier and improve reliability of ship monitoring greatly.
