C3.4 - Considerations for Effective Low Power Wirless Sensor Systems in Industrial Environments

M. Grazier & T. Almholt
This paper addresses key considerations for enabling robust low power wireless sensor links for use in large scale industrial settings.Applications include large, multi-story buildings that have complicated layouts and use building materials such as metal, reinforced concrete, and corrugated metal plates which are not friendly to RF communication systems. We will review wireless communication theory and discuss how to enable robust and reliable communication in these types of environments. We will review a generic RF...
