Meng Wang, Guangrong Bian, Ninghui He, Hu Chao


In order to realize supervision of water withdrawal, it is necessary to establish a modern monitoring system. This study focuses on the design of a remote monitoring terminal system that is operating in a south province in China. This terminal system adopts GPRS mode to establish communication with monitoring center. Detailed hardware design is provided, as well as its software functions. This terminal device finishes the basic function of water quantity collection. At the meantime, remote upgrade function and picture collection function are proposed in order to perfect the overall function of the system. Kinds of tests were conducted to verify its performances and functionalities. We conclude that the proposed remote monitoring terminal might become a useful tool for supervision of water withdrawal in the dispersed areas.
