About this book

Wireless Communication in Underground Mines: RFID-based Sensor Networking focuses on the recent advances in wireless communication technologies for underground mines and other hazardous areas. This comprehensive book provides a unified foundation of wireless communication systems for transmission of data, voice and video, and incorporates intrinsically safe design and development aspects of circuits, which are essential for hazardous areas. Topics covered in this book include design and development of an intrinsically safe trapped miner communication system, shaft communication system, line-of-sight communication system, mine-wide communication system, and web based information system. RFID technology is also discussed in detail, including compatible system specific embedded software for underground applications and program codes for different devices.

Wireless Communication in Underground Mines: RFID-based Sensor Networking covers a wide range of wireless communication systems as well as wireless sensor networking, radio frequency identification devices, and intrinsically safe circuit design techniques for underground mines and other hazardous areas. Designed for practicing engineers, the book incorporates all the technical details starting from design, fabrication, assembling, intrinsic safety analysis, testing, laboratory and field trials, deployment and operations of different wireless communication systems.
