Smart transducer technologies support the composability, configurability and maintainability of sensor networks. Sensor fusion techniques on the other hand offer a lot of advantages for systems that interact with their environment via a set of sensors. The combination of both leads to an effective system regarding cost, robustness, decomposability and maintainability.
This paper examines architecture requirements that incorporate smart transducer networks with sensor fusion processing and a hardware-independent application interface. These requirements are compared to the properties of the Time-Triggered Architecture and the TTP/A protocol. An application of the presented ideas is shown with a mobile robot controlled by a Time-Triggered Protocol network.
