Distributed architectures for industrial applications are a new opportunity to realize cost-effective, flexible, scalable and reliable systems. Direct interfacing of sensors and actuators to the industrial communication network improves the system performance, because process data and diagnostics can be simultaneously available to many systems and also(More)
—This paper deals with a smart-transducer wireless network for industrial applications. Thanks to its high popularity, a solution based on IEEE802.11 (also known as wireless fidelity or Wi-Fi) is experimentally investigated. A master–slave network organization is proposed to allow several sensors to be connected with generic Wi-Fi devices like PCs; a(More)
—In this paper, a Bluetooth-based sensor network is presented. Based on a Piconet, the proposed network supports Web-server capabilities, allowing the wireless sensors to be accessed by commercial browsers through the Internet. An experimental setup has been realized using three temperature sensors, and related information has been viewed by PC clients.(More)
This paper deals with Real-Time Ethernet networks based on PROFINET IO Class 1. Generally, industrial automation has a cyclical behavior; jitter in the application cycle depends on many factors and has direct consequences on production quality. In this work, in order to simplify application jitter estimation of complex systems, measurement techniques are(More)
