MOYA, Marcelo; GUERRON, Gonzalo  and  MONTERO, Andrés. Real-Time Embedded Control System for a Portable Meteorological Station. Enfoque UTE [online]. 2015, vol.6, n.3, pp.106-114. ISSN 1390-6542.

The aim of this work is to design and code an embedded system for a portable automatic weather station. The portable station includes high performance sensors to measure parameters such as: i) wind speed and direction, micro perturbations and wind gusts, ii) air temperature, iii) solar radiation, iv) relative humidity, and v) atmospheric pressure. The main contribution of this work is the development of an embedded control system operating in real time. This system is based on a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) device. The method developed guarantees high-resolution data acquisition of a number of samples in real time. The samples obtained are grouped and stored in a database, which will be used as a starting point for further analysis.
