Data Acquisition is the process of measuring and analysing various electrical and physical entities like voltage, current, temperature, pressure etc. A DAQ system consists of sensors, signal conditioning circuitry, analog to digital converter, and application software. DAQ system has a wide range of applications including Research and Analysis, Control and automation, Design validation and Verification. DAQ's applications are not only limited to medical instruments, industrial equipment and other home appliances but are used for variety of products. Generally DAQ system consists of Sensors, acquired data measurement hardware and computer software. In contrast our System will be equipped with Raspberry Pi 2 which is Linux based powerful machine with a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and 1GB RAM and thus eliminates the need of any external computer software. Our compact Linux based machine will be having inbuilt Data Acquisition capability and an ADC converter which also supports an HDMI display, we will provide a Linux based application which can run on HDMI display. Our system covers all possible means of communication wireless and wired for ease and variety of operations. It will be equipped with WIFI and Bluetooth for medium range data transmission while GSM and Ethernet for long range transmission. The system will be using thus various Internet of Things protocol options. We will also provide support for Android based application so that acquired data can be analysed by our application using various means of communication. In this project we will be explaining working and acquisition of data using skin response and temperature of human body. With the number of connectivity options and various connectivity ranges, the system is generalized for being used for several applications and also it is portable to use.
