Automatic meter reading

  Technology used in utility meters for collecting the data that's needed for billing. AMR, which works by translating the movement of the mechanical dials on a meter into a digital signal, does not require physical access or visual inspection. The data can be transmitted from the meter to the utility company by telephone, power line, satellite, cable, or radio frequency.
