In the industrial network, the trend of combining different communication systems has been observed in the past years and it will continue in the future. Nowadays, with the rise of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) and Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN), wireless technology is gradually infiltrating into the field of industrial control. This paper proposes an industrial data acquisition and transmission system using ATMEGA328P microcontroller based on Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) technology. System realizes the integration of heterogeneous networks and seamless acquisition and transmission of data, and enables remote real-time monitor to the sensor nodes distributed in the smart factory.
