For Cyper-Physical Production Systems (CPPS), localization is becoming increasingly important as wireless and mobile devices are considered an integral part. While localizing targets in a wireless communication system based on the Received Signal Strength Indicators (RSSIs) is a usual solution, it is limited by sensor quality. We consider the scenario of a car moving in and out of a chamber and propose to use a particle filter for sensor fusion, allowing us to incorporate non-idealities in our…

Life cycle of wireless sensor nodes in industrial environments

The design of a suite of protocols for wireless sensor networks (WSNs) with respect to a complete life cycle of a WSN node from warehouse to the end of operation is presented, which minimizes energy consumption, largely avoids collisions due to suitable multiple access protocols, and allows tight synchronization even during long sleep periods.
