Abstract: This paper presents the design, implementation and testing of a dual channels wireless sensing system that can be used for unattended environmental applications. The main tasks of this work are to measure temperature and pressure data of waste water line, the data is then stored and transmitted remotely. Two months of historical data is required. The transmitter is expected to have calibration facility using a suitable buttons and a graphical user interface. A suitable enclosure is required that protects the electronic equipment from the entire extremes of weather conditions and mechanical damage. The power consumption of the system is not expected to consume more than 0.5 A/hr over a six month period in order to suit the load ratings of both the battery and the solar cell.

 

Keywords: Wireless sensing, Unattended environment, Temperature and pressure measurement
