Description/Abstract

Wireless sensor networks (WSNs), which are capable of monitoring or controlling the systems to which they are coupled, have seen increased usage in industrial applications over recent years. A WSN consists of multiple ‘nodes’: small, autonomous devices which are inherently resource constrained and must operate for extended periods of time from limited local energy reserves. Nodes typically contain sensors, a microcontroller, radio transceiver, and power supply. The node’s sensors monitor the system to which they are coupled; for example, a node mounted on an electric motor could measure its vibration signature.
