Abstract The recent technology boom in wireless sensor network opens new opportunities for boosting efficiency and productivity of industrial manufacture by providing low cost, great automation and distributed control systems. Since designing an industrial wireless sensor network (IWSN) is significantly depended on the industrial environments, application requirements, and the characteristics of the available wireless technologies, a systematic approach for investigating IWSN designs is considered in this paper. Various design challenges, issues and possible solutions regarding IWSNs design are addressed.
