Development of a Co-Simulation Tool for WirelessHART Networks
In the last years the industrial automation world has moved from traditional analog communications to digital one, thanks to the adoption of fieldbuses. Nowadays, the actual frontier is represented by the removal of cables exploiting low cost wireless devices available on the market. In particular, several standards have been proposed, including ISA100.11a and WirelessHART. Performance of these complex systems is quite hard to be tested in the real world and a possible solution is represented by co-simulation. In this work a co-simulation framework is presented, devoted to WirelssHART networks.
