Visible to the public Holistic Control and Management of Industrial Wireless Processes

Wireless sensor actuator networks (WSANs) are gaining rapid adoption in industrial automation and manufacturing due to their low deployment cost and flexibility. While early success of industrial WSANs focused on monitoring applications, there are significant advantages, and also challenges, in employing WSANs in feedback control applications, since they require careful design and testing of both network configurations as well as control algorithms.
