22. Interoperability Test of IEEE 1451.5 Standard-Based Wireless Sensors
Topic: Sensors
Published: 3/13/2010
Authors: Kang B Lee, Yuyin Song
Abstract: The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451 standard provides plug-and-play capability of smart transducers (sensors and actuators). Plug-and-play is an important aspect of interoperability, which is the ability of two or more s ...
