Automated Data Collecting System (ADCS) is a common name for automatic systems that collect data of any kind. These systems are becoming more and more common in several industries and play an important part in many of today’s and future applications. Information flow architecture is an important issue, when employing an ADCS. This paper presents different kinds of architecture models and their typical characteristics, concentrating on traffic load issues in different parts of the system. The results presented in this paper, give a basis for more accurate specifying and designing of the architecture model for each automated data collecting application in question.
