Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) automatically collects the information on the amount of water, electric or gas that has been consumed by each household. When the AMR information is received, the exact energy amount can be charged from the energy supplier company. Traditionally, this has been done by manual reading of meters, but this can now be done automatically with wireless technology.
Several countries now have laws requiring energy companies to charge for the exact amount of energy being consumed and not just a predicted energy bill. Each country has specific regulatory requirements for AMR. This application report is targeting the Chinese AMR market (470 MHz to 510 MHz) with CC1310.
