Signals and Signal Processing in Manufacturing

  • Robert X. Gao

The term “signal” refers to a physical quantity that carries certain type of information and serves as a means for communication. As an example, the output of an accelerometer in the form of a voltage that varies with time is a signal that carries information about the vibration of the structure (e.g., a machine tool) on which the accelerometer is installed. Such a signal can serve as a means for communicating the operation status of the machine tool to the machine operator.
