Remote Test Monitoring and Controlling of Multiple Sensors Using Android App For Smartphones
This paper describes an advancement which could be implemented in the Automation Industry with the
development of Android application for smart phones. The various sensors used in industries such as temperature sensors
used in blast furnaces, fractional distilling columns for fuel extraction, food processing, pharmaceutical product
manufacturing, water level sensors used in Dams, storage tanks for hydroelectric projects and societies, motion sensors used
for security in industries and home automation systems can all be monitored and controlled remotely. The Android
application receives all sensor values through an ARM LPC2138 based embedded system and Wi-Fi module. Android app is
username and password protected and can be easily used by authorized personnel. We have developed a working prototype
of the proposed system as our project.
Keywords— Android app, Smart phone, sensors, Wi-Fi module.
