Monitoring and control systems
Monitoring and control systems are used widely in several areas such as home appliances, security systems, traffic lights, and industries. The basic approach is to measure a physical quantity such as temperature, pressure, light intensity, or volume of a gas. The measured value is sent to a computer. This is done by a sensor. A sensor is a hardware device that measures a physical quantity and transmits the value to a computer that controls the system.
This A Level Computer Science module introduces monitoring and control systems to your students, explaining:
- Programming in real-time
- Assembly language programming for testing sensors and controlling actuators
