In this paper, both the design and hardware of Fault Detection (FD) in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) was implemented using FPGA NI myRIO kit, wireless temperature sensors network with small size, low cost, and low power consumption. Work data processing was performed using pattern recognition methods to detect residual generation. LabVIEW software environment was employed for system performance. In this paper. The design of the hardware circuit NI myRIO kit received temperature from the sensors. The examined system showed an ability to monitor and track any fault or fire that may occur; based on the results, if collected data is exceeded predetermined threshold, then the system is responding, a direct connection is using WIFI to process this data by LabVIEW.

This paper presents a fault monitoring of DC motors. A neural network is prepared to processes the inputs parameters “motor speed and current” collected from sensors and delivers condition states of the DC motors “good, fair or bad”. FPGA Spartan 3 kit board is used to implement the proposed monitoring network and the circuits are designed for data acquisition to makes an interface between motors analog collected data and FPGAs digitals inputs ports. The designed circuits are intended to gather analogs readings from the target motor and converting them into digitals to be compatibles with FPGAs inputs ports specifications. The neural networks which are designed based on backs propagation trainings are implemented using Xilinx Spartan-3A Starter FPGAs Kits boards.
