Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the current field in wireless networks for monitoring and control. Alternative wireless technologies are introduced, together with current typical industrial applications. The focus then shifts to wireless Ethernet and the specialised requirements for wireless networked control systems (WNCS) are discussed. This is followed by a brief look at some current WNCS research, including reduced communication control.
