ZigBee suitability for Wireless Sensor Networks in Logistic Telemetry Applications

Abstract [en]

There has been a quick development in the wireless network area during the last decade. Mostly

these days the focus in the wireless area is on very high speed and long range applications. This

thesis describes how ZigBee is suitable for wireless sensor networks in logistic telemetry

applications for global managing and monitoring of goods. ZigBee has been developed by the

organization named as ‘ZigBee Alliance’ as a new wireless standard for the wireless solutions

based upon the IEEE 802.15.4 Standard [2]. ZigBee is a new technology as compared to the other

wireless technologies such as Bluetooth, but it has certain characteristics such as low cost, low

power, support for mesh networking e.t.c which makes its chances to be more successful than

others.

The other aim of this thesis is to examine different issues related to ZigBee to see its fitness for

logistic telemetry applications like multi-hop routing issues, routing strategies and design

requirements. ZigBee is relatively new wireless technology, so there are great deals of promises

associated with it. In this thesis, a comparison between ZigBee and Bluetooth technologies will

also be made.
