ZigBee Network and Mesh Network

- overview of the way in which a ZigBee network or a ZigBee mesh network may operate.

One of the key elements of the ZigBee system is the way in which the ZigBee network operates.

A ZigBee network is set up to enable data messages to be sent efficiently across the ZigBee network that may extend over considerable distances. With applications including lighting and heating control, the ZigBee network must be able to communicate over distances that may be well in excess of the single hop distance achievable by each individual node.

To achieve the full ZigBee network coverage messages must be able to be relayed.

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
