Abstract
Due to low cost, low-power, and scalability, ZigBee is considered an efficient wireless AMR infrastructure. However, these characteristics of ZigBee can make the devices more vulnerable to unexpected error environments. In this paper, a fault-tolerant wireless AMR network (FWAMR) is proposed, which is designed to improve the robustness of the conventional ZigBee-based AMR systems by coping well with dynamic error environments. The experimental results demonstrate that the FWAMR is considerably fault-tolerant compared with the conventional ZigBee-based AMR network.
