Internet-based Distributed Measurement and Control Applications



Kang B. Lee, Richard D. Schneeman


This paper describes research and development work conducted at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) on an Internet-based Distributed Measurement and Control (DMC) system. The work has resulted in applications that highlight state-of-the-art hardware and software techniques used to design, implement, and deploy next-generation Internet-based DMC systems. A framework, that the NIST work is based on, targets three important areas of standardization including transducer interfaces, open network communications, and distributed application development. An Internet-based DMC application using the framework and two other research activities rooted on the core of the Internet-based DMC research at NIST are described.
