Automatic meter reading

View this topic in
Automatic meter reading, or AMR, is the technology of automatically collecting consumption, diagnostic, and status data from water meter or energy metering devices (gas, electric) and transferring that data to a central database for billing, troubleshooting, and analyzing. This technology mainly saves utility providers the expense of periodic trips to each physical location to read a meter. (Wikipedia.org)

An access control method for multipoint cyclic data gathering over a PLC network

Yuzo Ohtomo; Takaya Yamazato; Masaaki Katayama Power Line Communications and Its Applications (ISPLC), 2010 IEEE International Symposium on, 2010

This paper proposes a media access control method for a multipoint cyclic data gathering system, in which each node transmits its data to the base-station periodically. In such condition, by broadcasting ACK/NACK signals from the base-station, the proposed method ensures assignment of a time slot for each node once the node succeeds to transfer its data. It is confirmed that ...


Automation of electricity billing process

Manisha V Shinde; Pradip W Kulkarni Power, Automation and Communication (INPAC), 2014 International Conference on, 2014

Meter reading is done for the electricity, gas or water consumption where meter is used to record the consumption of this energy. Here we will focus more on electricity which is very essential in day to day life. In today's scenario area decided for the energy provider employee to take the meter reading in terms of snapshot of meter and ...


Utilities and two-way customer communication systems

D. C. Yeung; F. A. Morgan IEEE Communications Magazine, 1995

The concept of providing energy conservation programs with monitoring and control via two-way communication (TWCC) systems will be one of the solutions that utilities will employ in the conservation of the nation's valuable natural resources. The development of microelectronic technology is changing the manner in which meters will be read. There are many methods currently available in the market that ...


A Power Efficient Algorithm for Data Gathering from Wireless Water Meter Networks

Akekaluck Wesnarat; Yodyium Tipsuwan 2006 4th IEEE International Conference on Industrial Informatics, 2006

A traditional method to gather water consumption data from water meters in residential areas by using human recorders is costly and time consuming. Many AMR (automatic meter reading) methods have been proposed to assist data gathering. A wireless ad-hoc sensor network configuration could be an alternative to reduce the cost of AMR. Some existing sensor network protocols such as LEACH, ...


Using ultra narrow bandwidth to overcome traditional problems with distribution line carrier

P. C. Hunt; L. R. Hunt Rural Electric Power Conference, 1995. Papers Presented at the 39th Annual Conference, 1995

It has long been common knowledge among communication engineers that wide bandwidth signals require more energy to overcome noise than do narrow band signals. This is why, during adverse conditions, Morse code radio communications can get through when voice cannot. To achieve similar range: a television transmitter (6000 kHz bandwidth) requires 200,000 watts; a music broadcast transmitter (60 kHz bandwidth) ...
