Wireless Sensor Networks for Industrial Process Monitoring and Control: A Survey
Keywords: wireless sensor networks, process monitoring and control
AbstractThis paper provides a survey on implementing wireless sensor network (WSN) technology on industrial process monitoring and control. First, the existing industrial applications are explored, following with a review of the advantages of adopting WSN technology for industrial control. Then, challenging factors influencing the design and acceptance of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) in the process control world are outlined, and the state-of-the-art research efforts and industrial solutions are provided corresponding to each factor. Further research issues for the realization and improvement of wireless sensor network technology on process industry are also discussed.
