Advanced Remote Data-acquisition


Agency: Advanced Science & Technology Institute (ASTI)

Field / Industry: Electronics

Patent Number / Registration Number: 2-2012-000525

Status of Application: Granted

Brief Description / Features of the technology:

The present utility model/technology relates to a datalogger that can be configured to store/record, and acquire data such as but not limited to, air pressure, air temperature, air humidity, wind speed and direction, rain amount, rain duration, rain intensity among others. The said device gathers data automatically without human intervention while data transmission is done through the use of GSM/GPRS and/or Satellite. With proper configuration, the said device can also be used in other applications depending on the type of sensor to be integrated. It can also be used to control other remote electronic devices or systems.

Problem Addressed:

Remote Data acquisition


  • Configurable to communicate with different types of sensor for the purpose of storing, recording, and data acquisition;
  • In addition to the intelligent power saving scheme, it has low operating power consumption making it suitable to renewable energy sources;
  • It can switch from GSM/GPRS to satellite communication and vice versa to ensure that data is transmitted as intended; and
  • The device system settings can be configured remotely and its firmware can be upgraded remotely using over-the-air (OTA) programming.

Market Potential / Application:

  • Disaster prevention and mitigation
  • System Integration
