Sensor Array Networking and Data Telemetering SystemMavros, George; McKearney, Kathleen; Park, Bomi; Ryu, YoungBeom; University of Arizona (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2004-10)The Remote Sensing Group (RSG) at the University of Arizona is currently using a data collection system that requires transfer of data with the use of wire connections. To improve the system, wireless technology is utilized to collect and transmit data larger distances to a storage computer. The main goal of this project is to aide RSG in determining if wireless communication is an acceptable and useful means of transferring collected data. In order to fulfill this goal, a wireless system was selected that met specifications defined by RSG. Tests conducted on the system provided significant results of the project, which are a communication distance of 150 feet, download distance of 40 feet, and successfully storing the transmitted data within 3% accuracy.
