An embedded system is an applied computer system that is built to control a range of functions. A brief discussion of embedded systems is presented. Remote access technology is the ability to control aspects of a manufacturing process from any location. Sensors are devices which can measure a physical quantity and convert it into a signal. It is described an Arduino-based embedded system for monitoring environmental variables. One solution is the control of the different environmental variables through a website. The website displays monitoring data to the user on a 24-hour line chart. Another solution is the remote access to be based on the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication) network. Theory explains the use of Arduino microcontroller, the use of sensors and how they are used in embedded systems.

Keywords: Arduino, embedded systems, sensors, remote access technologies, environmental variables
