Non-Controlling Sensor Device
How can sensor readings be automatically collected and shared in an efficient and cost-effective manner?
Information about physical stimuli may be required by systems residing in completely different locations. Without a means of communicating this information, the systems cannot receive and process it.
A wireless sensor can be deployed to gather and convert data about physical stimuli so that it can be transmitted to receiving systems.
A wireless sensor is deployed, capable of transducing physical stimuli into digital telemetry data that is transmitted via a modem.
