Wireless sensor area network

Thursday 28 August 2008, The University of Auckland

Abstract: A network of short-range wireless, Bluetooth-enabled sensor devices with a Backbone scaleable communication network using routers is proposed. A topology that allows redundancy in communications has been shown by simulation to offer more than two orders-of-magnitude improvement in real-time packet data reliability. This is important for medical and other systems where sensor alarms and real-time data must be reliable. A Wireless Sensor Area Network may be integrated to the mobile telephone system and hence the World-Wide Web. This enables remote sensing across the world.

Example applications of networked sensors suitable for integrating to the cellular mobile telephone system are: Voice over Internet Protocol, mobile cameras, safe pill-dispensing using RFID tags, position determination including Kalman filtering, UHF-RFID access monitoring and. inventory control.
