It is a work, which goal is a software development for monitoring and automation of a dedicated system for experimental analysis of solid materials composting. Therefore, the present work is a direct application of computer systems in the environmental and sanitary areas. Firstly, the work includes the study about the gases sensing and analyzer S710 that monitors the CO2 and O2 concentration in the composting process. Subsequently, the work includes a software development that receives data from the gases analyzer S710, store the information in a specific database, and control the air pump in the process, according to specific parameters defined by the user. The software also records the gases measurement as a time function, enabling a detailed study about the system behavior. This project is associated with a main research project, currently in development with financial support from Fapesp. The expected result fot this project is the development of reliable software to perform the explicated procedures, according to the specific group requirements.
