Why Wireless Sensors Networks Are Right for Industry
It seems like it was not so long ago that there was a serious debate over whether or not wireless sensor networks — and wireless communications in general — were a technology suitable for industrial applications. If you take a look around, that debate is over.
The increased adoption of wireless sensors across industry is due, like most industrial technologies, to solid, practical reasons. Chief among these reasons is ease of implementation (no long cable runs), ability to operate in harsh environments, easy troubleshooting and repair, and high levels of performance.
