Abstract

The industrial Internet of Things (IoT) is aiming to interconnect humans, machines, materials, processes and services in a network. Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) comprises the less power consuming, light weight and effective Sensor Nodes (SNs) for higher network performance. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and sensor networks are both wireless technologies that provide limitless future potentials. ZigBee is a sensor based special network which pulls the trigger to establish it in wireless network standard. ZigBee is the real time application for the WSN used for low-cost data and energy consumption characteristics. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system is a contactless automatic identification system using small, low-cost RFID tag to an animate or inanimate object. Because of the advantage of simultaneous recognition of massive amounts of information, it is expected to replace the traditional bar-code system. We evaluated based on the work done on the features which is best for wearable sensors.
