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 systems to easily communicate each other. Interoperability testing verifies if these systems will communicate together based on a standard or specification in an operational environment. This paper introduces the interoperability testing of the IEEE 1451.5 standard-based wireless sensors, including interoperability test architecture, IEEE 1451.0 messages, interoperability test system, and a case study of interoperability test between the IEEE 1451.5 standard-based Network Capable Application Processor (NCAP) and Wireless Transducer Interface Module (WTIM).
