Abstract [en]

The work described in this paper aims to test whether or not it is possible to power a system on energy harvested from vibrations and use that energy to measure how much it vibrates. The goal has been to produce a prototype system that uses that technique to discover damages on drones in an early stage. The reader will get to experience everything from design to testing of the system. The reader will also get an insight in which problems occurred during the project, how they have been handled and which conclusions have been made.The system could be applied in a variety of different situations to detect damages and which could prevent the damages from leading to severe problems.

Abstract [sv]

Arbetet som beskrivs i denna rapport ämnar testa huruvida det är möjligt att driva ett system med alstrad energi från vibrationer och använda den energi för att mäta hur mycket det vibrerar. Målet har varit att ta fram ett prototypsystem som använder sig av tekniken för att upptäcka skador på drönare i ett tidigt stadie. Läsaren får uppleva allt från design av system till aktiva tester och får en inblick i vilka problem som uppstått under arbetet, hur de har bearbetats och vilka slutsatser som dragits.Systemet skulle kunna appliceras i många olika situationer för att upptäcka skador och skulle kunna förhindra att skadorna leder till allvarligare problem.
