Dead Sea Starvation: Towards Enhanced Monitoring of Water Resources by Modeling Meteorological Variables and Remote Sensing Data

Dead Sea Starvation: Towards Enhanced Monitoring of Water Resources by Modeling Meteorological Variables and Remote Sensing Data

This study explored the potentials of computer intelligence to enhance the discovery of possible causes for the Dead Sea starvation. Machine learning algorithms tried to en- hance the monitoring of the waterbody by unveiling hidden relationships between var- ious input variables. Meteorological variables and remote sensing datasets from differ- ent sources were analyzed experimentally. The experimental results led to formulating two models that represent the relationship between several variables and the Dead Sea water level. Modeling the shrinkage rate using meteorological variables and water flows outperformed the other models significantly. However, the task was challenging due to the difficulty in data collection. The overall conclusion shows that computer intelli- gence can contribute in the sustainable development of the Dead Sea. On the other hand, the datasets quality is essential for drawing precise results. Further future work intends to seek high quality datasets to leverage the accuracy of the developed models, which includes other factors as the industrial consumption.

Peat Water Treatment based Wireless Data Acquisition System for Flexible Remote Monitoring

Peat Water Treatment based Wireless Data Acquisition System for Flexible Remote Monitoring

In this work, a computer-based remote wireless data acquisition system for monitoring peat water treatment data is proposed. A set of sensors are used to measure water treatment data (level, conductivity, and pH). Also a set of actuators (pump, ozone generator, and valve) are included in this system to take action based on sensor signal received by controller. The sensor signals are first filtered and amplified using precision electronic circuits in PLC and then are transferred to a PC using a wireless unit. The collected data are further processed, displayed on the monitor and stored in the disk using the KINGVIEW software. The TCP/IP is set on PLC, PC/notebook and application program to make remote accessibility on the peat water treatment system using wireless device. This method has the advantages of rapid data acquisition system development and provides an easy-to-use graphical environment that permits the system operators to process easily the collected data.

Design of a Real Time Wireless Data Acquisition System for Control Purposes

Design of a Real Time Wireless Data Acquisition System for Control Purposes

Fig 11: Temperature control block diagram The block diagram shows how the system works to control the temperature of a water tank, where the user determines the desired temperature (Setpoint) through a program performed in the LabView software environment [12], so that the PID controller, programmatically designed within LabView compares the value of the temperature sensed by the temperature sensor, which is collected wirelessly (using Xbee modules), with the desired temperature (Setpoint) and based on the difference between the two temperatures, the controller gives the command to the operator (rely), which runs the heater. The heating device continues to function until the measured heat value is equal to the desired heat value and the controller gives the operator a disconnection command. The monitoring interface for the designed control system is built as shown in Figure 14, through which the measured temperature can be read instantaneously. A measured temperature graph is displayed (graph at the bottom and right of the interface) and a PID controller output graph (graph at the top and right of the interface). It can also set the desired temperature value (setpoint) and set the parameters of the PID ( ، ، ) to get the best response. Figure 12 shows the block diagram of the designed interface.

General Purpose Wireless Communication System Using Data Acquisition

General Purpose Wireless Communication System Using Data Acquisition

The recent developments in technology enabled profes- sionals to use real time wireless data acquisition (WDAS) technology in several areas including structural health monitoring and security systems, manufacturing plants, and health-care applications [1-3]. One of the common problems in WDAS is the distance between receiver and transmitter to have high accuracy and low cost [4,5]. If multiple measurements are required, this problem then gets worse and transmission problem and system imple- mentation difficulties arise. Multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) systems usually require several antennas at the transmitted and receiver locations. This adds an- other challenge to the system implementation by in- creasing the circuit complexity and its associated cost.

A smart modular wireless system for condition monitoring data acquisition

A smart modular wireless system for condition monitoring data acquisition

To simulate high load, 8 virtual sensors were enabled on each SmartDAQ unit and total of 4 SmartDAQs were deployed (Fig. 5). Moreover, a 5th Smart DAQ was deployed with 6 virtual sensors plus one actual sensor (Fig. 6a). Finally, a single collection point was connected to a PC (Fig. 6b). The PC was updated with the required software components to enable the post-processing, reliability analysis, DSS and transmission to shore components. Virtual sensors were used instead of actual sensors for most of the SmartDAQs in this case study because there were no sufficient number of physical sensors available in the laboratory engine room to provide a significant load to the system. A virtual sensor is a bypass of the signal conditioning hardware as the readings are not sampled from the analogue input of the board. Instead the sampling unit is wired to a board analogue output. An additional component is enabled per sensor to read data from a file and send it to the analogue output. The system operates as if it was reading an actual wired signal through the analogue input. Hence, the process is imitating an actual sensor connection and respects the integrity and coherency of the presented system components. Each Smart DAQ was housed in a small non-metal box to protect the wiring (Fig. 5a, 5b) apart from the one connected to the actual sensor (Fig. 6a).

Monitoring and data acquisition system for the photovoltaic training facility on the engineering and energy building

Monitoring and data acquisition system for the photovoltaic training facility on the engineering and energy building

3.3 Selection of data acquisition equipment The final data acquisition design was selected during a meeting organised with supervisor Martina Calais, where advantages and disadvantages of different options were discussed. Adam modules were selected over the other options, because they were sufficient for the requirements of simple data acquisition without the need for logging, storage capacity or microcontroller, as opposed to the DT85M data logger, or National Instrument equipment. Indeed, it was decided to process all the logging and storage data within a Labview environment on a single computer, so that we have a common platform for monitoring of environmental sensors and inverters’ performances. Adam modules also appeared the most adapted option regarding signal types and quantity compared to Acromag units. A price and equipment comparison of the different DAQ options is shown in Table 5.

Design of ARM Based Data Acquisition and Control System for Engine Assembly Monitoring

Many embedded systems have substantially different designs according to their functions and utilities. There is no single characterization for all kinds of embedded systems. Processor based real-time embedded systems are playing an important role in most control applications. An embedded system interacts continuously with its environment and carries out various tasks with certain timing constraints to meet the requirements of system performance [9]. The processor has the dominant influence on an embedded system.
