In this work, the authors propose a novel directional anemometric system, showing a compact design and the absence of external mechanical moving parts. The measuring principle is based on a dual channel spherical wind conveyor structure, combined with a pressure difference sensing technique of the conveyed air flows by the employment of electromagnetic inductive transducers.
