An Implementation of Smart Transducer Web Services for IEEE 1451-based Sensor Systems



Yuyin Song, Kang B. Lee


This paper introduces an implementation of proposed Smart Transducer Web Services developed at the National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) based on IEEE P1451.0 standard. This implementation system consists of a service consumer, service provider, and wireless sensor node. A service consumer and provider can communicate with each other using Smart Transducer Web Services through SOAP (Simple Object Application Protocol) messages. Service consumers in this system can discover transducers, access transducer data, and retrieve transducer TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheets) using Smart Transducer Web Services. Both service provider and consumer are generated from the developed WSDL (Web Service Description Language) file. The service provider and wireless network node is implemented based on the IEEE P1451.0 and P1451.5 standards using the 802.11 wireless communication protocol. The work described in this paper provides a good foundation for Smart Transducer Web Services standardization and provides a standard way for IEEE 1451 applications to easily facilitate interoperability with other sensor applications by means of the developed WSDL file.
