Wireless Networks for Measurement Applications
From the attendees in the room, the main problems to be solved involved interference, security, cost of the network (when using cellular or satellite techniques) and the ubiquitous battery-life issue. Customer's requirements for powering the devices in the field ranged from 2 hour life spans up to 3 years. Ruggedization requirements also ranged from Not Required to Mil Std. and 5Gs.
It's clear that wireless networking has a wide range of uses and applications. The tools are starting to emerge to solve these applications cost-effectively. If you are working in this area, I would like to share insights gleaned from this technology demonstration event.
As always, if you know of an emerging technology, I am interested in hearing from you.
