Abstract

There is a growing potential of applications for wireless monitoring, control and instrumentation in industrial environments, construction sites and agriculture. Wireless communication technologies have clear benefits in harsh environments where traditional cables are too vulnerable or they cannot be installed permanently. Sensor networks with multiple wireless sensor nodes are needed when the size of the monitored area is large and especially in dynamic environments, like construction sites where the sensors can be installed to moving vehicles and work machines. In this paper we present results from some of our developments where short range wireless communication technologies have been applied for industrial and non-consumer monitoring applications.
