Marine data collection based on embedded system with wired and wireless transmission
MetadataShow full item record
A great interest of boat manufacturers is to improve their products by knowing how the boats are used after sale. In order to gather information about the condition of usages, a system needs to be developed in order to collect data from different marine electronics mounted on the boat. Through this thesis work, we developed such data collecting system for leisure boats which support CAN Bus the message-based protocol. The data collection system has been developed and installed on a Linux-based embedded system connected to the CAN Bus network through a gateway in our laboratory. Through the data collection system, all data generated from different marine electronics in the network can be captured, filtered, transmitted, displayed and then stored in the system. For data transmission and access, we have implemented three methods through wired or wireless networks, i.e., the fixed Internet, 3G/LTE cellular networks and Wi-Fi networks. Furthermore, the prototype implementation has been extensively tested in both lab and real-life environment.
