Advanced Distributed Measuring Systems
Exhibits of Application
Measuring systems are an essential part of all automated production systems. They can serve to ensure the quality of production, or they can be used to assure the reliability and safety in various areas. The same applies in principle for fields of telecommunication, energy production and distribution, health care, etc. Similarly, no serious scientific research in the field of natural and technical sciences can be performed without objective data about the investigated object, which is usually acquired using measuring system. Demands on the speed and accuracy of measurement increase in all areas in general. These are the grounds for publishing this book.
Advanced Distributed Measuring Systems: Exhibits of Application offers eight up-to-date examples of typical laboratory, industrial, and biomedical applications of advanced measuring and information systems, including virtual instrumentation. The book arose based on the most interesting papers from this area published at IDAACS 2011 conference. However, single chapters include not only system design solution in wider context but also relevant theoretical parts, achieved results, and possible future ways of design and development.
Technical topics discussed in the book include:
• embedded applications;
• small distributed systems;
• automotive distributed system;
• distributed monitoring systems based on wireless networks;
• synchronization in large DAQ systems;
• virtual instrumentation.
Advanced Distributed Measuring Systems: Exhibits of Application is ideal for personnel of firms dealing with control systems, automotive electronics, airspace instrumentation, health care technology, etc. as well as academic staff and postgraduate students in electrical, control, and computer engineering.
