Wireless Sensor Networks: Standards and Driving Forces

Maxim Osipov

Abstract

The paper will provide a state-of-the-art report of Wireless Sensor Networking technologies, including ZigBee, WirelessHART, LowPower Bluetooth and others. The main advantages and drawbacks of these technologies will be described, focusing on application-driven requirements. Special focus will be put on standardization activities in the areas of WSN design itself, as well as domain-specific WSN-related standards (Energy, Industry, Healthcare and Environmental). A review of application frameworks will also be provided, including OS-level platforms (TinyOS, Contiki OS).
