Title: IoT Enabled Sensors for Smart City and Environmental Monitoring
Abstract: The advancement of sensing technologies, embedded systems, wireless communication technologies, nano-materials, and miniaturization makes it possible to develop IoT enabled smart sensing systems. IoT enabled sensors empowers the vision of a Smart City to become a reality. IoT enabled sensors provides real time environmental data which will provide full awareness of weather/climate and can be used to take any strategic/corrective actions to address issues. This seminar will discuss fabrication and developmental works on IoT enabled sensors at Macquarie University based on MEMS as well as flexible materials for home, health and environmental monitoring. The success of the Commonwealth funded (Govt. of Australia) Smart city project and New South wales Government Funded Water project will be shared.

Title: Magneto-Mechanical Behaviour in Magnetic Gear Transmission: Design and Experiment
Abstract: During the new millennium, the interest in magnet gear has rapidly increased, with a continuous technological development, which is bringing magnetic gears very close to commercial applications, in substitution of classical mechanical transmissions, especially in specific industrial fields, as the wind industry. The planetary magnetic gear (PMG) turned out to be the best topological solution in terms of performance and torque density. This paper addresses the analysis of magneto-mechanical behaviour in a magnetic transmission, where the torque is transferred without contact between the coaxial rotors, composing the PMG, with several advantages as reduction of noise, wearing and the need of maintenance. A test bench for the analysis and validation of the contactless power transmission has been designed and realised. Mechanical and magnetic quantities are investigated, to compare them with the numerical analyses. Different tests have been carried out evaluating torques and speeds at the two side of transmission, in different load conditions to analyse transmission dynamic behaviour, to compute its efficiency, and to assess the possible implementation of a PMG in a transmission driveline, without altering its dynamic.
