Unloading operation by the unloader is dependent on the experience of the operator in the cabin. If the operator receives information about the unloading situation in the process of lifting the bucket, it is possible to prevent the collision of the bucket with the ship structure. In recent years, numerous measurement systems have become available on the market for three-dimensional surveying of objects, but they are very expensive. This study presents a high quality, low cost 3D laser scanning system designed for object recognition. The developed 3D laser scanning system is built on the base of a 2D laser sensor by the extension with a servo motor and a rotation module. In order to evaluate performance of the developed 3D laser scanning system, the developed system was applied to scan a shape of hatch and cargo holder on a cargo ship. Experimental results showed that to obtain a 3D scanning data for the area around the hatch and cargo holder.
Steering gear is the part of an automobile that change circular movement of steering wheel to lateral movement of rack to change driving direction. This can be classified with manual and power steering gear. Manual steering gear is operated only with human power while power steering gear use oil pressure support. These days power steering gear is more common to almost of the car. Recently a korean company manufactures a speed sensitive power steering which provide variable steering feel depend on the speed of car. The Broens company of Australia produces and exports the test equipments for the manufacture of power steering valves and assemblies to major vehicle manufactures. Some korean companies imported the test equipments from Australia, thus increasing the cost. The purpose of this study is development of the valve balance test equipment to measure the valve torque of the power steering gear. This study designed and manufactured the valve balance test equipment to take hold of the power steering valve using CAE analysis. In order to evaluate the performance of the developed valve balance test equipment, the R&R tests have been conducted.
This study developed the pressure measurement monitoring system named VIP-2000 for monitoring a pressure of ullage space in cargo tank. VIP-2000 is designed in compliance with IMO(international maritime organization) SOLAS 74, Chap. II-2 Req. 59. IMO is providing the establishment of a pressure measurement equipment for secure the stability from vacuum or the overpressure that caused by in breakdown of the P/V valve. VIP-2000 operates the early warning of the visible and audibility in dangerous situation of cargo tank. In order to evaluate the performance of VIP-2000, the pressure measurement experiments have been conducted.
In order to supply the high-quality electric power, several researches have been conducted. For the high-quality power, it is necessary to inspect the power lines and insulators before the lines or insulators are disconnected or damaged. However, it is not enough to inspect all the power lines by human inspectors. In previous study, a power line inspection robot was developed to investigate the power lines and insulators. According to replace the human operators by the robot, the inspection robot has several advantages: the improved working conditions, machine accuracy, and the prevention of accident. However, the robot has some defects in its heavyweight. In this study, a lightweight inspection robot has been developed using a RP and a vacuum casting. And, this study developed a fault detection monitoring program for the high voltage equipment using a microphone which detects the location of fault and the thermal imaging and CCD cameras which verifies the fault and stores the image, respectively.
Power steering gear is the part of an automobile. That converts circular movement of steering wheel into lateral movement of rack for changing driving direction. Recently power steering gear gets more common. A Korean company manufactures a speed sensitive power steering gear, which provides variable steering feel depending on speed of the car. However, the Broens company in Australia produces and exports the test equipments for manufacturing power steering valves. Some Korean companies import the test equipments from Broens and the maintenance cost gets increasing. The purpose of this study is development of the valve balance tester to measure the valve torque of the power steering gear. This study designed and manufactured a chuck and a jig of the valve balance tester to take hold of the power steering valve using CAE analysis.
Robotic manipulators are increasingly deployed in complex environments or to perform complex tasks. Studies on dual-arm-robots have been continually carried out in robotics areas to provide robots in dangerous environments, similar to those which human beings would be normally in, without a special change to the working environment. In previous study, a dual-arm-robot has been designed. The robot, however, has some defects in its heavy weight and big shape. In order to reduce weight of an arm robot, the robot has been designed using a hollow-shaft-servo- assembly. The hollow-shaft-servo-assembly is composed of a hollow-shaft-servo-motor, a hollow- shaft-harmonic-drive, a hollow-shaft-brake, a hollow-shaft-encoder, and a servo-drive.
A fresh water generator is designed to produce fresh water from sea water. This generator produces fresh water by evaporating and condensing sea water, and it uses the engine jacket water as the heat source. While a vessel is sailing, it uses main engine coolant to produce fresh water and also, while a vessel is in port, it uses auxiliary engine coolant. After all, sea water is evaporated the heat which the coolant contains, so it can produce fresh water economically, because it dose not need additional heat source. A salinity meter is a densitometer measuring the concentration of salt in sea water. This study designed the multi-function salinity meter(SAL-2000). SAL-2000 has many functions such as conductivity, salinity, flow rate, and so on. In order to evaluate the performance of SAL-2000, the measuring experiments such as salinity, flow rate, and pressure have been conducted.
A valve open/close degree measuring device is used for an indicator of a valve actuator. This device indicates an opening and closing of a valve or throttle in a hydraulic actuator. In ship, equipments requires safe and robust because of a rough environment and a specific condition during a voyage. Thus, the open/close degree measuring device must be developed which can be used at an outdoor environment. This study developed the open/close degree measuring device using a volumetric measuring method(25㎖/100㎖). The housing of the open/close degree measuring device was made by a stainless steel with surface painting after an anodizing coating.
