C4.4 - Cost Modeling of Radio Sensor Systems for Industrial Applications

M. Niedermayer
The implementation of wireless sensor networks in complex machinery and plants paves the way for advanced concepts of condition monitoring and remote maintenance. Smallest irregularities on rolling bearings and gears can be recognized by sensitive vibration sensors to detect the damage status. Radio sensor systems provide cost-efficient solutions in broad range of industrial application ranging from process monitoring to material logistics. Radio sensor systems exhibit a lot of design trade-offs regarding system behaviour, hardware architecture...
