Abstract: Our work presents a low-cost temperature acquisition, for incubator system, based on the Arduino hardware platform; both the hardware and software components are detailed, together with experimental evaluation. This system was designed to facilitate the process of identification and control of a temperature of premature infant incubator. The experimental evaluation revealed that this system is not only capable of temperature signal acquisition, for incubator purposes, but it can also be used as a generic platform for other biomedical applications, greatly extending its applicability. In this paper we describe the proposed platform, with special emphasis on the design principles and functionality. System identification results based on least squares algorithm (RLS) to find the ARMAX input-output mathematical model. We opted for the GPC structure for control temperature. The results of implementation in real time on the neonatal incubator were presented and interpreted.
