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)
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)
Evolution and cost of measurement equipment, continuous training, and distance learning make it difficult to provide a complete set of updated workbenches to every student. For a preliminary familiarization and experimentation with instrumentation and measurement procedures, the use of virtual equipment is often considered more than sufficient from the(More)
