Abstract: Recently, there has been a growing demand to incorporate multimedia content delivery over the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). This feature could not only enhance several existing applications in the commercial, industrial, and medical domains, but could also spur an array of new applications. However, the efficient gathering of still images, audio, and video information in WSNs imposes stringent requirements on the throughput and energy consumption. Most wireless communication standards with high or moderate data throughputs do not focus primarily on energy efficiency. The IEEE 802.15.4 WPAN standard provides a widely accepted solution for low-cost and low-power wireless communication, with a potential to cater to many types of application scenarios. To design a wireless interactive data acquisition and control system is a challenging part of any measurement, automation and control system applications. Advancement in technology is very well reflected and supported by changes in measurement and control instrumentation. Data acquisition and control system based on AVR microcontroller (Atmega168) is presented. This makes use of the built in ADC of the microcontroller and thus the resolution is 10 bits i.e. one part in 1024. . The controlling program on an arduino read this input at pre-decided time intervals. The controlling program reads these values and process accordingly. Microcontroller programs are also developed and tested successfully.
