Wireless sensor networks constitute one of the most promising technologies to provide sophisticated infrastructure for condition monitoring processes. The mass spread of small wireless devices, enables information access anytime and anywhere. With wireless sensor networks scalable monitoring environments can be created, as node addition is straightforward. The main advantages brought by wireless sensors include:

  • Ease of installation, as sensor positioning is freed from the constraints of cabled installations
  • Accessibility: every point of measurement becomes accessible
  • Simplified network design: dynamic topologies for fault tolerant networks supported by flexible protocols.
  • Scalable, large and yet maintainable infrastructures, as new nodes can easily be added to the network
  • Fault tolerance: redundancy in the sensor network enables it to tolerate faulty nodes.
