The MANTIS project first milestone has been successfully reached. Up to this milestone, CISTER was able to deliver a middleware for CNC machine monitoring, capable of making available data from the machine internal sensors and from sensors specific for pro-active maintenance. This last type of sensors can be added to high end machines to detect condition like the presence of metal in machine lubricant and abnormal vibration on the machine. The existence of these conditions enables the MANTIS system to predict failure and determine the root cause of failure, among other functionalities. The overall MANTIS also passed successfully its first project review meeting.
