ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS announces the availability of a new report entitled “Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) 2014-2024: Forecasts, Technologies, Players”. According to this report, WSN market will grow to $1.8 billion in 2024. These figures refer to WSN defined as wireless mesh networks, i.e. self-healing and self-organising. Wireless Sensor Networks will eventually enable the automatic monitoring of forest fires, avalanches, hurricanes, failure of country wide utility equipment, traffic, hospitals and much more over wide areas, something previously impossible. It has started already with more humble killer applications such as automating meter readings in buildings, and manufacture and process control.
The WSN business is set to become a multi-billion dollar activity but only if there is major progress with standards and technology. This techno-marketing report scopes manufacturers and developers and looks closely at the impediments to rollout and how to overcome them. For example, today’s power sources often stand in way of the desired 20 year life so the report looks closely at how energy harvesting can help and profiles the relevant power source manufacturers. Ten year WSN market forecasts are made based on the very latest information.
This new report draws lessons from many successful installations in the last year. It looks at the complex standards scene with particular focus on WirelessHART that is the key to applications in the process industries in the short and medium term and it shows how the alternative ISA 11.11a has some way to go but may prove useful over a wider field of application and eventually subsume WirelessHART. It examines recent successes of the various backers of ZigBee-related solutions, who is behind the alternatives and how they see the future.
Details of the new report, table of contents and ordering information can be found on Electronics.ca Publications’ web site: “Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) 2014-2024: Forecasts, Technologies, Players”
