A Low-Cost Wireless Sensor Network

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), which were designed for application in industrial measurements with the use of low-cost commercial components. The concept of the WSN is presented, as well as hot-topics concerning its implementation, in order to make the communication between the nodes and the base-station as reliable as possible. The architecture, protocols and the reasons that governed the choice of the components are also discussed. Wireless communication micro-systems with high density of nodes and simple protocol are emerging for low-data-rate distributed sensor network applications such as those in home automation and industrial control.
