About the Author

Mike Tooley is a technical author and consultant. He was formerly Vice Principal at Brooklands College in Surrey, England, where he was responsible for the delivery of learning to over 10,000 Further and Higher Education students increasingly by flexible, open and on-line distance learning. Mike is the well-known author of several popular engineering and related text books, including widely adopted course texts for BTEC, GCE A-level and GCSE qualifications in Engineering. Mike's hobbies include astronomy, amateur radio, aviation, computing and electronic circuit design and construction.


"Mike Tooley's book is a good practical introduction on how to use a computer to control and monitor external transducers and sensors. The content of the book fully justifies the author's claim that it provides sufficient information to make an informed decision on which hardware and software is needed to implement a range of instrumentation and control systems." -- Mike Button, Media Electronics World, March 2006
