A SmART drill that automatically detects
materials and adjusts feeds and speeds

THE SETUP


STEP 1 | provide a random (i.e. stochastic) voltage input into the drill

STEP 2 | measure the power response of the drill while drilling into different materials

STEP 3 | using Toeplitz matrix inversion, build a library of material-dependent impulse responses

STEP 4 | using convolution, test predictive power of material library with real samples
