Hybrid wireless sensor networks best practices
Wireless sensor manufacturer Libelium seeks engineers to respond to survey on advanced control protocols to enhance control systems, specifically on hybrid wireless sensor networks.
Engineers responsible for systems integration and control systems engineering are encouraged to respond to a new survey aimed at clarifying which process and advanced control protocols are essential for future hybrid wireless sensor networks. The survey, being carried out by Spanish wireless sensor device manufacturer Libelium, asks which industrial, automotive, lighting and home automation protocols are currently being used, and which ones are most preferred for future sensor network deployment.
Libelium, which produces customizable sensor boards that collect and share data across a wireless platform, will use the findings to ensure their forthcoming hardware module enhance control systems engineering tasks as all protocols relevant to industry practice will be included.
“Our survey makes sure that systems integrators will be able to capture and make full use of the extensive data capacity available on our sensor boards by enabling the creation of hybrid wireless sensor networks combining existing industrial protocols and Zigbee/802.15.4”, said Libelium CEO, Alicia Asin Perez.
Systems integration and automation engineering professionals are encouraged to answer the simple survey online to help clarify industry practice.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
