Program Flow

The application software drives the platform by instructing the Robostix to sample the sensors' readings at predefined time intervals. Each reading is then time-stamped and together with a GPS reading logged onto the storage unit. The program also controls the LED boards to light up the necessary number of LEDs reflecting the intensity of the measurements. Each sensor has a dedicated LED board which reflects the changes in the sensor reading in real time. Figure 5.1 gives a brief overview of the program flow.
