Presentation Summary

  • IEEE 802.15.4 wireless mesh networks based on time-synchronized, channel hopping standards such as IEC62591 (WirelessHART) offer carrier-class reliability and network-wide low power, enabling every node to operate for many years on batteries or energy harvesting power sources.
  • New low power wireless standards, such as ZigBee Green Power, 6LoWPAN and 802.15.4E, will bring ultra low power wireless sensors powered by energy harvesting to even broader markets.
  • Examples of a variety of low power wireless mesh network applications will be presented, including data center energy management, equipment condition monitoring and process plant efficiency.
  • Location aware, wire-free mesh networks can dramatically cut the installation cost of RTLS infrastructure, while offering the ability to simultaneously transmit wireless sensor data, control signals and accurate location information for both static and moving objects.
