In todayĆ¢??s demanding and competitive business environment, the need to collect, interpret and act on real-time data plays an increasingly vital role.? But data collection using typical wired sensor networks has always been expensive to install and maintain, and limited in its reach.? At the same time, the promise of a wireless solution has been elusive because of problems with reliability, power consumption, and the costs and complexity of network installation and expansion.? Wireless sensor network (WSN) is a term used to describe an emerging class of embedded communication products that provide redundant, fault-tolerant wireless connections between sensors, actuators and controllers. WSNs provide performance above and beyond legacy point-to-point solutions; particularly in areas of fault tolerance, power consumption and installation cost.
