Multi-Processor Based Intelligent Industrial Monitoring and Control System Based on μCOS-II and Wireless Sensor Networks

Tinotenda Zwavashe [3] | Dr. D. Vasumathi


Abstract: This paper is based on my M Tech project which shares the same title as this paper. It presents a model which illustrates how we can incorporate a Real Time Operating System (RTOS) into an Industrial setup whereby a sensor node resides in the field where processing is carried out and a Master or Control station resides in a control room and the two communicate using a wireless protocol. The RTOS is meant to provide predictability, faster time response and high performance among other wide provisions. The RTOS used to implement this model is COS-II (Microcontroller Operating System) from J Labrosse. It is a pre-emptive kernel where the highest priority task in the ready queue is executed first. Thus faster processing of control commands and real time logging of data channeled by sensor node to control station is expected as a result of incorporating the operating system rather than use of a super loop.
