Several use cases from the areas of manufacturing and process industry, require highly accurate sensor data. As sensors always have some degree of uncertainty, methods are needed to increase their reliability. The common approach is to regularly calibrate the devices to enable traceability according to national standards and Systeme international (SI) units - which follows costly processes. However, sensor networks can also be represented as Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and a single sensor can…

The Paradigm Shift in Smart Manufacturing System Architecture
This paper provides a study of the architectural impact of individual ICT technologies on the emerging manufacturing ecosystem that potentially eliminates the need to design manufacturing systems based on the hierarchical levels of the legacy ISA 95 model and proposes a service-oriented SMS architecture that leverages the benefits of ICT and the safety and security requirements from the OT domain.
Requirements, drivers and analysis of wireless sensor network solutions for the Oil & Gas industry
The conclusion of this work is that an open, and energy-efficient, standard is needed before WSNs can be fully utilized in the Oil & Gas industry.
