Comparison of wireless techniques applied to environmental sensor monitoring

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1461936

This report investigates the technological basis for low power, low bitrate, medium range, wireless transmission of environmental sensor data. This is a typical 'Internet of Things' (IoT) application, and most of our findings are therefore generally applicable to the wider IoT field. The report star...

Wireless Instrumentation for Safety Critical Systems. Technology, Standards, Solutions and Future Trends

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1334480

Wireless communication is an important part of everyday life, but has until recently been considered too unreliable for use in industrial processes. In particular, there has been reluctance to accept wireless systems as part of safety critical operations. This report considers the pros and cons of w...

Wireless gas sensing in South African underground platinum mines

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1217391

Approximately 70% of South African mines are classified as fiery, where methane gas potentially could cause explosions. The number of flammable gas reports and accidents are increasing steadily for both gold and platinum mines. However, there is less awareness of the hazards of methane in hard rock ...

Wireless communication in process control loop: Requirements analysis, industry practices and experimental evaluation

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1197789

Wireless communication is already used in process automation for process monitoring. The next stage of implementation of wireless technology in industrial applications is for process control. The need for wireless networked control systems has evolved because of the necessity for extensibility, mobi...

Towards the Development of a SIL Compliant Wireless Hydrocarbon Leakage Detection System

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=CRIStin+1085566

Wireless communication is one of the fastest growing technologies in process automation and now targets main stream applications. One such application is a safety application; it is unique in its own rights, as any problem with safety related equipment, network or system can compromise on-site safet...
