Applied Instrumentation, ER4706 – Assessment 1Solution.pdf
The assignment should be your own work and written in your own words. It will be checked for similarity using Turnitin. Any plagiarism or copying from others will be dealt with through the university’s plagiarism procedures.
Your assignment must be submitted electronically via BlackBoard (Assignments tab) by the submission time and date. The report should be contained in a Word document, or PDF No other means of submission will be accepted. The software code will be submitted independently.
Any assignment submitted late, but within 5 working days of the deadline, will be given a maximum mark of 50%. Assignments submitted more than 5 working days after the deadline will not be marked, and a mark of 0% will be recorded.
Learning Outcome to be assessed:
1 Demonstrate the ability to select and use sensors and transducers typically
used in advanced engineering applications
2 Apply appropriate engineering analysis methods in practical aspects of sensor
use 3 Collect and analyse research data and to use appropriate engineering analysis
tools in tackling instrumentation and measurement systems
4 Use virtual instrumentation and virtual simulation tools to design and critically
analyse applied instrumentation systems

Applied Instrumentation, ER4706 – Assessment 1 2019/20
Task: ‘Global-Technologies’, is a system engineering company that develops measurement systems for different industries to support a wide range of applications.
You have been asked as an engineer in the ‘Global- Technologies’ company, to design and develop a measurement system that is able to demonstrate the operation of crane 'Load Moment Indicator' (LMI) system using sensors model. The measurement system includes the measurement of crane boom length, boom angle, load, outrigger position, and driver cabinet temperature.
Provide a detailed, professional report for your director that contains the following:
1- A review of different LMI systems used in cranes industry including their main elements.
2- A design of a typical LMI system that incorporates the measurement of crane parameters including boom length, boom angle, load, outriggers position, and temperature. The system design should include DAQ/ microcontroller and any other required elements for a typical LMI system.
3- A measurement software program (LabVIEW/ C++) that can be used to provide the following parameters, log the measurement data, and give warning alarms when limits of the following parameters are exceeded.
? Boom length ? Outriggers position ? Load ? Driver cabinet temperature 4- Experimental results and critical analysis that evaluate two sensors of the LMI
system using the NI DAQ and NI LabVIEW software.
5- An evaluation of signal conditioning elements that are required to measure the
load using strain gauges.
6- Proposal for the next phases of development to include the following:
A. Using of a low-cost controller instead of the current one
B. Other methods of data transmissions; wireless or wired data transmission,
and use of the Internet of Things
