Abstract

A new concept called Wireless ad-hoc control networks (WACNets), designed for distributed and remote monitoring and control is explored in this work. It is suggested that ad-hoc control networks are the next stage in the development of distributed control and monitoring. WACNet explores a framework for organic, evolutionary and scalable method of integrating a large number of nodes with sensing and/or actuation, local intelligence and control, data processing and communication capabilities. A combination of IEEE 1451 compliant Smart Sensor and Bluetooth standard is employed to develop the first generation test-bed for the study of WACNets. The concept is introduced and the design of the nodes is presented. The progress up to date and the results obtained are reported.
