Chapter 11. Data Acquisition: Weather Monitoring Station

For many scientific systems, the automatic collection of data is usually acquired through the use of sensors or devices. This data acquisition typically involves the processing of signals and waveforms to obtain the desired information. The components of a data acquisition system include the appropriate sensors that convert any measured parameter to an electrical signal, which is acquired by data acquisition hardware. Control software is developed that interprets the signals for analysis and display.

Using object-oriented techniques to design a data acquisition system allows us to isolate the hardware that measures and collects the data from the application that then analyzes the information. ...
