Book Description :

ZigBee is a standard based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for wireless personal networks. This standard allows for the creation of very lost cost and low power networks - these applications run for years rather than months. These networks are created from sensors and actuators and can wireless control many electrical products such as remote controls, medical, industrial, and security sensors. Hundreds of companies are creating applications including Mitsubishi, Motorola, Freescale, and Siemens. This book is written for engineers who plan to develop ZigBee applications and networks, to understand how they work, and to evaluate this technology to see if it is appropriate to a particular project. This book does not simply state facts but explains what ZigBee can do through detailed code examples. *Details how to plan and develop applications and networks *Zigbee sensors have many applications including industrial automation, medical sensing, remote controls, and security *Hot topic for today's electrical engineer because it is low cost and low power

Book Description :

Compared with other wireless communication technologies, such as Bluetooth, WiFi, and UWB, ZigBee® is a far more reliable, affordable, and energy-efficient option. It is also the only global wireless communication standard for easily deployed, low-power consumption products. ZigBee® Network Protocols and Applications provides detailed descriptions of ZigBee network protocols and explains how to set up and develop your own ZigBee-based customized applications with step-by-step instructions. Starting with a brief introduction to near-field communications, low-power communications, and related protocols, it discusses ZigBee architectures, standards, and protocols. It also addresses potential issues such as power management, security, reliability, quality of service, topology control, MAC routing, and transport protocols. Emphasizing development tools that are based on readily available commercial kits, the book illustrates ZigBee applications across a wide range of fields. Each chapter presents the contributions of a different group of experts from around the world. The book is organized into five major parts: Introduces near-field communications (NFC), low-power communications, and ZigBee along with related protocols such as Bluetooth, WiFi, UWB, and Wireless USB Describes ZigBee architectures, standards, and protocols Examines ZigBee performance improvement and addresses potential issues Illustrates ZigBee applications across a range of fields—explaining how to develop ZigBee applications that are based on commercially available kits and hardware Compares and contrasts ZigBee with 6LoWPAN, Z-Wave, Wireless Hart, and RFID Providing step-by-step instruction on how to set up and develop ZigBee-based applications, this book is a must-read for researchers and engineers.

Book Description :

This book examines two main topics, namely, Wireless Networking and Mobile Data Management. It is designed around a course the author began teaching to senior undergraduate and master’s students at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering of the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur. The first part of the book, consisting of eight chapters, including the introduction, focuses exclusively on wireless networking aspects. It begins with cellular communication systems, which provided the foundation of wireless networking principles. Three subsequent chapters are devoted to the Global System for Mobile communication (GSM), Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), Bluetooth, infrared (IR), ZigBee and 6LoWPAN protocols. There is also a chapter on routings in ad hoc networks, an area that is currently being intensively researched due to its potential applications in areas of vehicular network, traffic management, tactical and military systems. Furthermore, the book discusses mobile operating systems and wireless network application level protocols such as Wireless Application Protocols (WAP), Mobile IP and Mosh. The second part highlights mobile data management. It addresses the issues like location management, the importance of replication and caching in mobile environments, the concept of broadcast disk and indexing in air, storage systems for sharing data in mobile environments, and building smart environments. Given that the design of algorithms is the key to applications in data management; this part begins with a chapter on the type of paradigm shift that has been introduced in the design of algorithms, especially due to asymmetry in mobile environments. Lastly, the closing chapter of the book explores smart environments, showing the readers how wireless technology and mobile data management can be combined to provide optimum comfort for human life. Though the book has been structured as a monograph, it can be used both as a textbook and as a reference material for researchers and developers working in the area.

Book Description :

The IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee protocols embody promising technologies for WSNs, but are still ambiguous on how to efficiently build synchronized multiple-cluster networks, specifically for the case of cluster-tree topologies and mesh topologies. In fact, the current IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee specifications restrict the synchronization to beacon- enabled (by the generation of periodic beacon frames) star networks, while they support multi-hop networking in mesh topologies, but with no synchronization. Quality of service (QoS) requirements can be satisfied in star based topologies using the Guaranteed Time Slots (GTS) feature of the IEEE802.15.4 standard, GTS communications in multi hop scenarios are currently limited by IEEE802.15.4 beacon scheduling designs. This restricts applications to run over sensors that are within radio range of the network coordinator. In this work, proposals are made for successful data transmission in multihop chain network. Throughput, efficiency and duty cycle are analyzed for each proposals made and finally their advantages and disadvantages are summarized at the end in conclusion

Book Description :

This thesis investigates the reliability of ZigBee signal strength within a high-density wireless network, specifically looking at the Link Quality Indicator (LQI) as provided by the physical layer and accessible at the networking and application layers within the stack protocol. It also investigates methods by which LQI can be used for discovery, identification, and localization of nodes within a ZigBee wireless network. The thesis concentrates on practical approaches specifically as it would pertain to commissioning a high-density network for an application such as lighting control in building automation. There are seven potential algorithms proposed using factors such as minimum distance error, perceived confidence, and triangulation. Experiments, which explore the reliability of signal strength indicators, reveal that the fluctuations of the signal strength indicate that a simple, inexpensive algorithm is insufficient. Simulations, which explore varying conditions such as network layouts, node-count, and node-density, reinforce this notion; however, this thesis also shows that more complicated and expensive methods do show promising results. Using the simplest of methodologies, the experiments and simulations result in 30-35% accuracy. However, with the more complicated methodologies (using techniques such as reiteration, emulation, and cooperation), the results reveal accuracies of 80-90%. This thesis concludes from these results that a simple algorithm and methodology may not be sufficient but that there are approaches that can improve the results. However, the cost of these approaches may be deemed too high for practical use. Further exploration in these methodologies, though, should show promise that more sufficient accuracies without sacrificing too much cost are attainable.
