Computer and Microcontroller Techniques for Instrumentation and Control Systems in Advanced Life Support 2000-01-2263

The use of embedded microcontrollers in ALS (Advanced Life Support) systems can create intelligent sensors and control systems. This integration requires cooperation between biologists and engineers who need to understand how biological systems can be controlled by mechatronic systems. Mechatronics is the synergetic combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronic control and systems thinking in the design of products and processes. Microcontrollers offer the ability to combine these concepts into working systems suitable for ALS.
