Multi-bus logger as IoT gateway in networked mobile applications
Test, measurement and condition monitoring on the Internet: an overview of the various requirements for autonomous data acquisition systems for monitoring machinery and vehicles and available flexible solutions.
Whether the “Internet of Things” will in-deed experience a major breakthrough in the networking of consumer devices such as refrigerators and toothbrushes, and whether all applications to be pioneered there actually meet urgent needs – this is currently controversial. However, in industrial environments there are certainly many promising applications for networked data acquisition and monitoring to be found – with a massive potential for savings in resources, energy and preventable wear and tear. Here, bus loggers play a central role as data acquisition systems for communication buses and as intelligent gateways to the Internet.
