Abstract: In the areas of building automation and automotive applications the use of systems of (embedded) systems is very common. However, until recently, in many cases the communication between the participating systems was cable-based. Due to developments in the area of wireless sensor networks, the communication can be converted step-by-step to be wireless. This leads to many advantages, like reduced space requirements, less weight, etc. On the other hand it introduces new problems like possible occasional connection problems, vulnerability in terms of data security, etc. This survey paper gives an overview on current activities and works in the area of wireless sensor networks for automotive and building automation applications.
Keywords: Wireless Sensor Networks, WSN, Building Automation, Automotive.
