Abstract : Background/Objectives: The advent of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have revolutionized the field of automation in many ways. This paper presents the implementation of one such WSN useful for industrial applications. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The establishment of the WSN cluster using low cost MSP430 processor and RF transceivers is explained. This network could be easily modified to suit the needs of a particular process in an industry. Findings: A basic hardware system comprising of a cluster having five nodes is tested with real time control signals. Such a network was found to be reliable, low cost and low power consuming. This cluster can be duplicated and such clusters can be integrated with the use of gateways to form a large network to monitor and control the various processes in an industry simultaneously. In the consumer end, these networks will be more user friendly and available at low cost. Applications/Improvements: The WSN clusters can be used for automation of various industries with the possibility of easy modification or expansion in the future.
