Smartdust and ZigBee for transport applications (2007)

Author(s): Selvarajah K, Tully A

    Abstract: Over the last few years many different versions of wireless sensor devices have been designed and built by various companies and institutions. The wireless sensor devices include sensors, microprocessor, bi-directional wireless communication technology and a power supply. This type of tiny wireless micro electro mechanical device has been nicknamed as “Smartdust”. The Smartdust devices have been successfully tested in many sensor network applications but potential use of the devices in transport domain is not clearly known. The Embedded Middleware in Mobility Applications project (EMMA) is funded under the Information Society Technologies (IST) Priority of the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission. The application domain of transport will be taken as a pilot example where EMMA will foster cost-efficient ambient intelligence systems with optimal performance, high confidence and faster deployment.
