There is a growing potential of applications for wireless monitoring, control and instrumentation in industrial
environments, construction sites and agriculture. Wireless communication technologies have clear benefits in harsh
environments where traditional cables are too vulnerable or they cannot be installed permanently. Sensor networks with
multiple wireless sensor nodes are needed when the size of the monitored area is large and especially in dynamic
environments, like construction sites where the sensors can be installed to moving vehicles and work machines.
In this paper we present results from some of our developments where short range wireless communication technologies
have been applied for industrial and non-consumer monitoring applications.
