Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper describes a new digital wireless data acquisition system that can be used to measure electro-magnetic interference (EMI) in power stations or other similar harsh environments. It comprises of a Remote Acquisition Unit (RAU), a Wireless Data Communication Network (WDCN) and a PC-based Control Platform. Using digital technology, the system transmits a signal (transient or steady state) of short duration & wide band through a narrowband channel over a longer duration. The RAU captures and stores the EMI signals and sends the information to the Control Platform at a convenient time, using the Wireless Data Communication Network The Wireless Data Communication Network acts as a bi-directional data communication link between the RAU & the Control platform. It is based on Bluetooth technology and has a point-to-multipoint topology. The RAU serves as the acquisition function of a Digital Storage Oscilloscope (DSO) while the Control Platform carries out the display & control function of a DSO. The whole system, as such, may be regarded as a 'Computerised Wireless Oscilloscope.'
