Mobile Technology for Measurement and Control

Hans-Petter Halvorsen


Below you find an overview of relevant topics within Mobile Technology for Measurement and Control, such as Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), Data Acquisition, Development Technology for Mobile Devices such as Tablets and Smartphones, Software Engineering, etc. The use of mobile technology in automation systems are important part of the so-called Industry 4.0.

Data Acquisition (DAQ)

Data Acquisition (DAQ) is an important part in such systems. Data Acquisition (DAQ) is the process of collection data from different sensors into a computer.

A DAQ System consists of 4 parts: Physical input/output signals, sensors DAQ device/hardware Driver software Your software application (Application software).

See the Data Acquisition page for more details.


Wireless Data Acquisition

Wireless technology and wireless networks are widely used today, but it’s still quite new in industrial automation systems. ZigBee and WirelessHART are popular in industrial applications, while Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Cellular are more popular in consumer products like Smartphones, computers, etc.

Several Student Projects has been carried out within this field.

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN)

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) is a network of distributed wireless sensors or so-called sensor nodes connected together in a mesh topology. The sensor nodes are then connected to a gateway.
