Abstract
This document describes a high-level communication protocol, the ZigBee™ technique, and its potential use for distributed sensing and monitoring. The framework for a ZigBee™ based wireless sensor network is proposed and a feasibility study is carried out employing a Microchip development kit (PICDEM Z) with built-in temperature sensor. Temperature measurements in the range of 25°C and 65°C with 1°C accuracy were demonstrated. It is expected that other types of sensors, which can be applied to aircraft structural health monitoring, can be integrated with the ZigBee™ technique. Furthermore, it is recommended that this document is used as a reference for programming the Microchip PICDEM Z board.
