Abstract: To oversee a series of incubators in a hospital, we carried out the networking of all its incubators in order to centralise the information and thus facilitate supervision, monitoring and remote control. A graphical interface is being developed to facilitate a dialogue between man and machine. Based on performance tests in our laboratory, the proposed architecture has a good rapport efficiencies and price. This document presents a promising solution for the implementation of a distributed network. The communication protocol used for dialogue between the different elements which are connected has been implemented in the physical layer of the networking level equipment to reduce the load on the CPU.
