I sympathize with the comment that this is too complicated for someone's app - it is in some cases. Over 80% of my designs have NOT been actual ZigBee. about 30% were not even 802.15.4 but used the phy and LL built into the silicon. Example, simple monitoring or control.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
