Executive Summary

Given the potential benefits offered by Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), they are becoming an appealing technology for process, manufacturing, and industrial control applications. In this paper, the authors propose a novel approach to WSN protocol design for control applications. The protocols are designed to minimize the energy consumption of the network, while meeting reliability and packet delay requirements. The parameters of the protocol are selected by solving a constrained optimization problem, where the objective is to minimize the energy consumption and the constraints are the probability of successful packet reception and the communication delay.
