International Journal of Intelligent Systems Technologies and Applications (IJISTA), Vol. 3, No. 1/2, 2007


Abstract: A system architecture is proposed for integrating sensors, controllers, actuators and instrumentation within a common framework. The goal is to provide a flexible and scalable system. Extending the system, by adding additional components such as sensors or actuators, does not increase the overheads and is achieved seamlessly with minimal modification of the core controller programme. The architecture is generic and finds application in many areas such as home, office and factory automation, process and environmental monitoring, surveillance and robotics.
