Zigbee technology utilization in gathering and transceiving data for intelligent building automation
The researcher employed Zigbee or IEEE 802.15.4 protocol for his wireless sensor network (WSN)- based building automation in transmitting collected data such as temperature, relative humidity, illumination, and vibration from the mobile WSN device to the base station. The WSN technology used was the old Experimental Technology from Sun Labs, the Sun - Small Programmable Object Technology (Sun SPOT) Development Kit of Sun Lab of Oracle, Horvlleur 2019. The configurations supplied in the kit are the base station and the eSPOT Horvlleur 2019. The latter was made to board the old intelligently-enhanced Roque ATR ERS Mobile Robot traversing the perimeter of the building – subject for automation. The development of Roque ATR ERS Mobile Robot is beyond the scope of this research. he experiment conducted was to determine whether or not Zigbee or IEEE 802.15.4 protocol can efficiently collect data from the environment of the perimeter of the building. The context of the data collection and transception was obviously short range under the conditions: robot was at rest or the robot was mobile. The result shows original hypothesis “HO: There is no significant difference between the data collected for analysis at the Knowledge Base System (KBS) Center while the Robot is at motion outside the subject building and the data collected while the Robot is at rest outside the same building” is rejected.
