The paper proposes the development of a weather station made up from a Raspberry Pi 3 and the Sense Hat shield. The shield used in this application has sensors for temperature, humidity and pressure. The weather station can connect to the internet wirelessly or with a standard UTP (Unshielded twisted pair) connection, this connection gives us the ability to take part in a scientific community for the sole purpose to monitor the weather all around the world. The program for the weather station is made in Python, the program language is easy to used and very versatile.

The paper proposes the development of a wireless video camera that is used to capture images from any microscope, and is universally compatible with the standard C-Mount. The purpose behind developing this camera is to offer an economical alternative to the current high-priced microscopy camera without compromising performance. In addition this camera has the technology to work wirelessly.
The proposed system is a method to power supply luminaires in inaccessible areas. It proposes a method with using PV panels and calculating MPPT. It is a method of supply luminaires with LiFePO4 batteries using remote transmission and transmission electrical parameters using microcontrollers for a complete autonomy and management system.

Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) have been developed as the human-body monitoring systems to predict, diagnose, and treat diseases. Since the signal transmission in WBANs takes place in or around the human body the channel fading significantly affects packet error rate and overall network performance. This paper focuses on the design and demonstration of an ultra-wideband (UWB) modem to be used in the WBAN applications, and the evaluation of its performance over Rayleigh fading channel. Results show how the fading channel affects the performance of the system.

The development of intelligent smart grids requires new electrical monitoring solutions in order to optimize power consumption. The implementation of intelligent energy-monitors leads to new technical developments to optimize consumption using intrusive and non-intrusive techniques. This paper makes a review of the main methods used for load monitoring systems, indicating their advantages and disadvantages. The emergence of high-harmonic consumer electronics in electrical networks such as LED lighting sources implies the choice of the appropriate method and equipment for optimizing energy consumption based on energy signatures.

The paper describes some functionality extensions for a D.C. motor speed control system with PID controller used as a didactic unit. The extensions are made in two directions: one at a physical-hardware level and the other one at software development of numerical algorithms and graphical interface. Both developments have the aim to extend and to get a more flexible paradigm for the control algorithms study on both continuous and discrete approach and to add the possibility to compare different control solutions.
In this paper it is presented the control system of an automated storage which was conceived and achieved at the University of Oradea by using a Blue Earth 485 microcomputer. There are presented the main components of the control system: the microcomputer and the hardware interface for the drive, the control programs conceived as well as the implemented user interface on a PC computer.

This article deals with developing new modified algorithms of 40kb/s ADPCM. Beside the standard algorithm, three algorithms are developed to reduce the ADPCM distortion. The performances of all algorithms are evaluated with QAM signal at speed of 9.6kb/s. The outcomes demonstrate that the first proposed algorithm outperforms the other algorithms.
