Watchdog Agent Prognostics Toolkit for LabVIEW
The Watchdog Agent Prognostics Toolkit expands the capabilities of LabVIEW system design software in machine prognostics and health management (PHM) applications. It is ideal for serving engineers’ increasing demand for monitoring and reporting the health status of machines, structures, components and systems. It provides a set of algorithms including logistic regression, statistical pattern matching, a self-organizing map, a support vector machine and a Gaussian mixture model. Engineers can use these algorithms to create machine and component status descriptors of operating states and failure modes. The algorithms convert multiple field sensory readings into summarized health information values for efficient monitoring. The toolkit also includes a health radar chart that displays organized health values of multiple machine components on a single display.
