Time- and safety-critical automation systems are at the heart of infrastructure such as oil refineries, automated factories, and power plants. While there are convincing economic arguments for using wireless monitoring in these environments, current approaches do not provide stability for closed-loop control or performance guarantees. PRECISE is exploring flexible network architectures and radical distributed approaches to bring wireless control to production systems.
