Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks Today
Demand for wireless sensor networking is ramping up in the industrial sector,
largely due to anticipation for the increased reliability and scalability of
mesh networking. With thousands of nodes per network to be commonplace
within five years, ON World projects that there could be 168 million nodes
deployed in 2010 for industrial applications for an end user market worth
$5.9 billion at this time.
High return on investment, low replacement costs and ever-increasing
pressure to cut costs, industrial companies have the most to gain from
wireless sensor network technologies. Now that concerns over reliability,
security and robustness are being solved with the latest hardware and
software advances, ON World predicts that nearly all major process
automation OEMs will offer wireless sensor network solutions by the end of
With very little upfront and maintenance costs, industrial companies have
much to benefit from adopting wireless sensor networking with little
downside. Initially, wireless sensor networks will be targeted at monitoring
applications displacing wired systems such as DeviceNet, Modbus, Fieldbus,
Profibus, etc. Far from frivolous, these applications provide companies with
a competitive advantage by saving millions of dollars per year in maximized
equipment lifetimes, process optimization and prevention of unplanned
downtimes. ON World estimates that many industrial companies can save up
to ten times the initial investment per year, with very little downside.
At first companies in certain industries such as power generation, chemical
and petrochemicals will have the most incentive to adopt wireless sensor
network technologies. Within five years, companies will adopt wireless
sensor network technology in order to stay competitive.
Mesh Wireless Sensor Networking
Wireless adoption has been slow so far in the fault-intolerant world of
industrial automation largely due to concerns about reliability. Existing
wireless solutions have not always been reliable or robust enough especially
in harsh industrial environments. Although end-users are still wary of
wireless technologies, knowledge of mesh networking and the new ZigBee
standard is growing.
With multiple large scale mesh deployments expected by the end of 2005,
within five years wireless sensor networking will become widespread in
millions of factories, refineries and manufacturing plants worldwide.
The major advantages of mesh wireless sensor networking include the
• Lower Costs – At least 50% less for wiring not to mention reduced
costs associated with installing, maintaining, troubleshooting and
upgrading. For factories with 100,000 of square feet the potential
savings are enormous.
labor/configuration costs and complexity.
testing, troubleshooting, repairing and replacing wires requires time,
labor and materials.
connectors; wireless communications can eliminate this problem.
• Improved Flexibility – Reconfigurable networks makes re-wiring easy
even in areas or equipment that would not normally be networked.
Relatively high profit margins and strong return on investments, makes the
industrial sector a good target for Innovative startups such as Crossbow
Technology, Dust Networks, Eka Systems, Ember Corporation, Sensicast and
Millennial Net. These startups will be instrumental in making this happen
over the next few years with more newcomers such as Atalum likely to join
in. Meanwhile, competition for component suppliers such as ATMEL,
Chipcon, Motorola, Nordic Semiconductor and ZMD and licensors such as
AirBee Wireless, CompXS, Figure 8 Wireless, Helicomm and JENNIC will be
intense with the usual mergers and acquisitions expected. Leading the early
adopters are OEMs such as ALSTOM, Eaton, RAE Systems and Tyco Thermal
Controls with ABB, General Electric, Honeywell, Invensys, Mitsubishi, OMRON,
Rockwell, Samsung and Siemens sure to follow.
