Wireless Interfaces for IEEE 1451 Sensors Network



James D. Gilsinn, Kang B. Lee


NIST started working with industry and the Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEEE) in the mid 90''s to develop a standardized interface to network smart sensors. With the spread of wireless technology, more industries are looking to incorporate wireless communications into their products and manufacturing processes. This paper discusses the IEEE 1451 standard interface for smart sensors, emerging wireless communication technologies, and possible solutions for creating a wireless interface for the IEEE 1451 standard.
