March 03, 2014 // By LL. Doherty, J. Simon, T. Watteyne, Linear
Multichannel time-synchronized mesh networks based on 802.15.4 radios address many of the challenges, such as interference and multipath fading, involved in building flexible, reliable, low-power wireless sensor networks. Markets for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) include building automation, industrial control, home automation, smart grid and automated metering infrastructure (AMI), industrial process automation, environmental monitoring, parking and transit infrastructure, energy monitoring and inventory control.
