The Regulatory Challenge to Wireless Embedded Control
Most of us have used short-range-wireless technologies in the form of point-to-point Bluetooth connectivity between mobile phones and headsets or between a PC and a wireless mouse. Short-range-wireless technologies typically have a range of 10 to 50m and data rates of less than 4 Mbps. These technologies enable a new concept, WiEC (Wireless Embedded Control). The philosophy of WiEC calls for the ubiquitous embedding of simple wireless transceivers in host systems beyond PC peripherals and consumer electronics. You can use these transceivers to report data or receive commands, creating networks out of otherwise-stand-alone machines. You can then use these networks to enhance the performance and the efficiency of member nodes.
