In this paper, we describe our experiences in the design, implementation and deployment of a wireless sensor network in a petroleum facility. A heterogeneous architecture is devised using Commercial Off-the-Shelf equipment and hardware interface is designed to setup the proposed prototype in a petroleum facility. Various performance parameters such as(More)
WINTeR is an open access, multi-user experimental facility which supports implementation and evaluation of wireless sensor networks for industrial applications in radio-harsh environments. An important new characteristic of the testbed is its ability to incorporate built-in and user generated dynamical models of industrial processes. This allows researchers(More)
The present work relates to WINTeR, an open access, multi-user experimental facility, currently under development, to support implementation and evaluation of wireless sensor networks for industrial applications in radio-harsh environments. A brief review of existing testbeds is provided and the unique requirements of WINTeR are defined. The resulting(More)
Wireless networked control systems have begun to gain acceptance during the last decade, largely due to the increased flexibility and lower costs they promise to provide. The pace of application has been held back, however, by the reluctance of industry to make the accommodations necessary to allow wireless paths to be incorporated in process control loops,(More)
