Abstract—As wireless sensor technology improves; an increasing number of organizations are using it for a wide range of purposes. ZigBee technology is a new standard in wireless personal garea after Bluetooth. After an introduction to this technology, a new wireless meter-reading system based on ZigBee protocol has evolved. This system, which is comprised of ZigBee network and database management system, has many important advantages such as low cost, low power consumption, and low date rate. Wireless Sensor Network based on ZigBee technology is a wireless network which is composed of many nodes of ZigBee RF chip, sensor and MCU, especially suitable for application of the remote monitoring system in flammable and explosive environment. Fusion of RFID and Zigbee is also possible which turn out to be boon for wireless sensor network technology. A complete overview of wireless sensor network technology is given in this paper. Wireless sensor network technology has become one of technological basic needs of us.
Index Terms—Bluetooth, networking, protocol, RFID.
