Telemetry is the measurement and study of the transmission of data over specific mediums, such as telephones or computer networks. Communication channels are the main portion of any telemetry system. Major applications of telemetry monitor comprise monitoring electric-power plants, remote meter reading, collecting meteorological data, logistics management, tracking endangered land and marine species, and monitoring manned and unmanned space flights.
Layers of labor costs can be removed with some applications providing additional cost savings. Even machines may be monitored at a distance and alerted when there are issues detected. When these approaches are used for both control and telemetry data collection, the term supervisory control and data acquisition are applied. The usefulness of telemetry information in determining physiological and behavioral patterns of wild creatures cannot be overemphasized. Telemetry helps scientists understand and establish the natural causes that are connected to habitat conditions of wild creatures, which in turn alter their behavior, and how such conditions influence their mortality rates.
