CultureBee for Wireless Sensor Networking
What is CultureBee?
CultureBee is the name of our own-developed remote sensing system for the purpose of preserving cultural heritage and historically valuable buildings. The overall CultureBee system is illustrated below. CultureBee utilizes, besides other features, the ZigBee protocol for local wireless sensor networking which can also be remotely monitored as a webpage via the Internet. It is a two-way and real-time system for both monitoring and control purposes. CultureBee can also be used for environmental monitoring in the residential, agricultural and industrial areas. We have had projects supported by the Swedish Energy Authority (Energimyndigheten) and Vinnova, etc.. The purpose of these projects is to study issues of saving energy while conserving cultural values of historical buildings, by utilizing the CultureBee system for automatic sensing, display and control. The developed CultureBee system has the characteristics of long radio range (up to 1.6 km line-of-sight), long battery lifetime (up to 10 years), and short link establishment time (15-30 ms).
What is ZigBee?
There are many wireless monitoring and control applications in the industrial and home environments that require so-called wireless mesh networks with low power consumption. For such wireless applications, the ZigBee protocol based upon the IEEE 802.15.4 standard has been specified by the ZigBee alliance with members of Freescale, Philips, Atmel, Siemens, Samsung, Analog Devices and Texas Instruments, etc.
