The main goal of the IEEE 1451 standards is to define a set of common communication interfaces to standardizethe connectivity of transducers to microprocessors, instrumentation systems, and control/field networks. IEEE 1451 isnot only allows sensor manufacturers to support multiple networks, but also let users pick sensors and networks for theirapplications based on merits. Users are allowed to access any sensor in a wired or wireless network, and òplug and playóof sensors to a network.
