Sensory protective cover

In this joint project, a flexible protective cover of the partner Arno Arnold GmbH is to be expanded with sensor technology. The current state of wear of the protective cover should be diagnosed with the help of the recorded measured values. This makes it possible to reduce maintenance measures to a minimum and at the same time ensure the protective function of the cover.


  • Sensory detection of the wear condition
  • Diagnosis of the protective function and a wear reserve
  • Prediction of the remaining service life


  • Analysis of wear mechanisms in protective covers
  • Sensor integration in covers
  • Identification of information-bearing sensor signals
  • Statistical classification of signals
  • Classification using AI and machine learning approaches
