—Coexistence issues between IEEE 802.11b wireless communication networks and IEEE 802.15.4 wireless sensor networks , operating over the 2.4-GHz industrial, scientific, and medical band, are assessed. In particular, meaningful experiments that are performed through a suitable testbed are presented. Such experiments involve both the physical layer, through(More)
The deployment of a wireless control system must cope with a number of effects usually negligible in a wired scenario. To this aim, an experimental analysis on suitable prototypes and testbeds can readably offer a valid and rapid method to forecast the behavior of a real network. In this paper, performance measurement of industrial wireless sensor network(More)
—This paper describes a client–server architecture for the remote control of instrumentation over the Internet network. The proposed solution allows multiuser, multi-instrument sessions by means of a queueing and instrument locking capability. Client applications can be easily developed by using conventional high-level programming languages or well-assessed(More)
The performance of the IEEE 802.11 WLAN are influenced by the wireless channel characteristics that reflect on the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), particularly in industrial communication systems, that often operate in harsh environments. In order to cope with SNR reductions, the IEEE 802.11 WLAN specification suggests to adapt (reduce) the transmission rate,(More)
Two different topics are covered in the thesis. In the last years the interest about dynamic driving simulators is increasing and new commercial solutions are arising. Driving simulators play an important role in the development of new vehicles and advanced driver assistance devices: in fact, on the one hand, having a human driver on a driving simulator(More)
In the modern wireless applications of factory automation, interference phenomena among near operating wireless networks can be the cause of severe performance degradation. To avoid this possibility and prevent deleterious system failures, simulations may offer a real and reliable solution. In this paper a new simulator is presented, allowing cross-layer(More)
