Abstract
In today's life, remote environmental sensing via distributed and remote telemetry stations is a vital demand for pollution control and wildlife protection. However the high cost of sensors and their environmental ruggedness, engineering and equipments' cost, and the complex signal processing are restricting the spread of such technology. This paper is introducing the design and modelling of a compact size environmental telemetry station (CETS) based on passive optical sensors and Fuzzy logic control. Here, the cost reduction and size problems are solved by using the fiber Bragg gratings sensors that are able to detect a wide variety of environmental variables such as temperature, humidity, toxic gases, odours, chemical pollution, water dissolved toxins, level, pressure and many more. Also the complex signal processing problem is solved by using an array of fiber Bragg gratings sensors that coexist on a single fiber core, where their signals are multiplexed and processed in the optical domain without the need to analogue-to-digital conversion. The control and encoding problem is solved by using a Fuzzy logic control algorithm within an imbedded system fitted with a CCD sensor spectrometer.
