DOMINANT TECHNOLOGIES IN “INDUSTRY 4.0”
MONITORING AND CONTROL SYSTEM USING GPRS
- 1 Faculty of Computer Sciences and Automation, Technical University of Varna, Bulgaria
A structure of a multifunctional hardware – software system for sensing and control of remote objects in the household and in the industry are considered. A version of data transferring between control center and controlled object using GPRS service is proposed. The monitoring and control are realized by a set of remote stations which control the objects and receive parameters from them. Every station has a microcontroller and GSM – GPRS modem with SIM card. The stations are linked to the switching server. Data received from remote stations are kept in the server. The server distributes information and sends control commands. Personal computers of the control center are connected in a local network. They receive data from WEB sites and send commands to the switching server. The design and the characteristics of two realized systems for remote monitoring and control are described.
