Distributed Industrial Sensors Systems (DISS's) using the BBB

Small computer boards have become very popular recently among hobbyists and makers but can these boards be effectively used to realize Distributed Intelligence Sensor Systems (DISS's) in industrial applications? To help answer this question, two reference designs have been developed: the first design allows the BBB to be connected to four different sensors having digital interfaces; the second reference design converts a traditional industrial Wheatstone bridge sensor to have a digital output.
