Abstract—The objective of this research is to develop the high performance monitoring software extended data base of the mobile weather station by using the embedded computer. The monitoring software that the author developed could measure and record temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, rainfall, solar irradiance and UV index. These parameters can be sent from mobile unit to base unit via radio frequency signal. The embedded computer is used as a database and hosts the monitoring software. This software was developed by using LabVIEW. It comprised of the Monitoring Program, the Data Acquired and Record Program, and the Report Generating Program. It can monitor and display any parameter in real time of graph and numerical data. It could also make a report in the format of research information. The research information could be created well-suited for the Microsoft Office.
Index Terms—Monitoring software, weather station, labview, report generating program.
