  • Wi-Fi in Sensor Applications

    Abstract: Sensors are used for measurements and for acquisition of data; but they require an effective data transfer mechanism to enable full- fledged applications that utilize the data they collect. A popular method of data transfer is through wireless means. Among the wireless mechanisms, 802.11 Wi-Fi stands out for a number of reasons. Redpine's informative paper on the use of Wi-Fi in sensor applications describes these advantages; and also covers the implementation of such application scenarios.
