Time Synchronization for Real-Time WirelessHART network (English)
Wireless technology has been regarded as a paradigm shifter in the processindustry. The first open wireless communication standard specifically designed forprocess measurement and control applications, WirelessHART (HighwayAddressable Remote Transducer) was officially released in September 2007 (as apart of HART 7 specification).
Currently in industry the performance of machines are monitored in real-timescenario, which include from vibration measurement to surveillance monitoring.Sometimes data can be in the burst mode or sometimes it comes in a liner fashion.Therefore in order to achieve precise result an accurate time is mandatory.
Various techniques and protocols are used and designed for the data collectionfrom different devices in industry located in different areas, among them isWirelessHART. WirelessHART networking is becoming popular for wirelesscommunication systems in industrial automation plants, which is a newlydeveloped protocol which is specifically designed to be used in industrialenvironment. The technique which has been used for data collection inWirelessHART is Time Synchronization and Channel Hooping (TSCH).However this technique sometimes has drawbacks and get failed when there is atransmutation of data in burst mode.
Therefore the main object of this thesis work is to implement the Floodingtime Synchronization Protocol (FTSP) over Time Synchronization Protocol(TSCH) in WirelessHART communication standard.
