ZigBee is a standard based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for wireless personal networks. This standard allows for the creation of very lost cost and low power networks - these applications run for years rather than months. These networks are created from sensors and actuators and can wireless control many electrical products such as remote controls, medical, industrial, and security sensors. Hundreds of companies are creating applications including Mitsubishi, Motorola, Freescale, and Siemens. This book is written for engineers who plan to develop ZigBee applications and networks, to understand how they work, and to evaluate this technology to see if it is appropriate to a particular project. This book does not simply state facts but explains what ZigBee can do through detailed code examples. *Details how to plan and develop applications and networks *Zigbee sensors have many applications including industrial automation, medical sensing, remote controls, and security *Hot topic for today's electrical engineer because it is low cost and low power

Compared with other wireless communication technologies, such as Bluetooth, WiFi, and UWB, ZigBee® is a far more reliable, affordable, and energy-efficient option. It is also the only global wireless communication standard for easily deployed, low-power consumption products. ZigBee® Network Protocols and Applications provides detailed descriptions of ZigBee network protocols and explains how to set up and develop your own ZigBee-based customized applications with step-by-step instructions. Starting with a brief introduction to near-field communications, low-power communications, and related protocols, it discusses ZigBee architectures, standards, and protocols. It also addresses potential issues such as power management, security, reliability, quality of service, topology control, MAC routing, and transport protocols. Emphasizing development tools that are based on readily available commercial kits, the book illustrates ZigBee applications across a wide range of fields. Each chapter presents the contributions of a different group of experts from around the world. The book is organized into five major parts: Introduces near-field communications (NFC), low-power communications, and ZigBee along with related protocols such as Bluetooth, WiFi, UWB, and Wireless USB Describes ZigBee architectures, standards, and protocols Examines ZigBee performance improvement and addresses potential issues Illustrates ZigBee applications across a range of fields—explaining how to develop ZigBee applications that are based on commercially available kits and hardware Compares and contrasts ZigBee with 6LoWPAN, Z-Wave, Wireless Hart, and RFID Providing step-by-step instruction on how to set up and develop ZigBee-based applications, this book is a must-read for researchers and engineers. Supplying the required foundation and network protocols, it is also suitable for use as a textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in electrical or computer engineering programs.

Since its recent introduction, the ZigBee protocol has created an enormous amount of buzz in venues from magazine covers to trade show floors to water coolers. Its promise of providing a simpler, cheaper, more power-efficient WPAN (Wireless Personal Area Network) alternative to WiFi and Bluetooth has opened up new data collection possibilities in application areas from industrial controls to medical devices to intruder alarms. Yet, despite this widespread interest, there is still little information available that goes beyond detailing the spec itself. Missing from the current ZigBee lexicon is practical, application-oriented guidance from an expert, specifically geared to aid engineers in implementing this new technology. Enter respected designer and popular columnist Fred Eady! With his new book, Hands-On ZigBee, he provides the only comprehensive how-to ZigBee guide available. The ONLY one-stop Zigbee resource available- from basics to sniffers to specs 7 easy-to-assemble ZigBee projects allow the reader to follow along...hands-on!

In a constant stream of new ideas, wireless technologies continue to emerge offering a range of capabilities, each affording simplicity and ease-of-use. Such diversity and choice should surely beg the question, “are manufacturers using the right technology for the right product? Developing Practical Wireless Applications will explore this question and, in doing so, will illustrate many of the wireless technologies currently available whilst drawing upon their individual strengths and weaknesses. More specifically, the book will draw your attention to the diverse collection of standardized and proprietary solutions available to manufacturers. As developers and innovators your choices are not restricted to any norm and, as such, a standardized or proprietary solution may afford you greater benefits in realising any product roadmap. Developing Practical Wireless Applications will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of how each technology works, coupled with an exploration into overlapping, complementary and competing technologies. In establishing this foundation, we will explore wireless applications in their context and address their suitability. In contrast, the book also considers the practicality of a wireless world in an attempt to better understand our audience and specific demographic groups. Coupled with a richer understanding of our consumers, along with our technology make-up we can indeed target wireless products more effectively. *Explores techniques used to attack wireless networks including WarXing, WarChalking, BlueJacking, and BlueSnarfing *Discusses applications utilizing ZigBee, NFC, RFID, Ultra-Wideband and WirelessUSB (WiMedia) *Details Bluetooth 2.x +EDR and introduces the v3.0 (BToverUWB) specification *Includes fundamental introductions to WiFi, namely 802.11i, 802.11p and 802.11n *Compares personal-area and wide-area communications including 3G, HSDPA, 4G, and WiMAX, as well as introducing Wireless Convergence
