This book discusses data and command transmission protocols for industrial wireless sensor networks (IWINs) which can be used in monitoring and control applications for industrial work fields and any applications that require data transmission in a reliable and timely manner. Monitoring and control applications are distinguished from other sensor applications in that a server collects data from the target field, draws a service based on the analysis of data, and sends a service command to workers or actuators in the field. This service needs to be made with time bound to increase the effectiveness of service, especially in case of emergency situation. Accordingly, this book includes three IWSN protocols: The slotted sensor multiple access (SSMA) protocol for data collection, the slotted sense multiple access broadcast (SSMAb) protocol for command transmission and the over-the-air programming (OAP) protocol for the remotely update of program source code.
