Continuous advances with wireless sensor network (WSN) technologies will allow for smart buildings within the next decade, according to a report published by ON World, a global technology research firm.
The wireless sensor network market, led by ZigBee, grew ten-fold from 2007 to 2010 and exceeded 45 million annual shipments in 2011, according to ABI Research. Strong growth is expected for 2012 and beyond, said Peter Cooney, wireless connectivity practice director for the firm.
