  • If sufficient demand
  • The course aims to knowledge of implementation of systems for automated data acquisition. Furthermore, the course aims to provide overview of systems and methods to acquire and transfer measurement data in test- and industry-environments, and also to present methods to program such a system in a structured and logical way.

    A project gives the student an opportunity to independently solve a problem for automatized data acquisition. The project aims for the student to, on his or her own, to specify the best strategy to collect measurement data for the given problem. The so specified solution shall then be programmed with methods taught in the course. The project is presented orally for the other students, and also in a written report.
  • The course starts with an introduction, examples and labs. A project with a focus on data acquisition is choses at an early stage which is then implemented and evaluated. Reporting and demonstration constitute an important part of the projectwork and is introduced at an early stage in the course. The supervisors will be available for questions and discussions and prearranged times.
