As modern megalopolises become more complex and huge, convenience and safety of citizens are main components for a welfare state. In order to make safe society, telemetrics technology, which remotely measures the information of target system using electronic devices, is an essential component. In general, telemetrics technology consists of USN (ubiquitous sensor network) based on a wireless network, smart sensor, and SoC (system on chip). In the smart sensor technology, the following two problems should be overcome. Firstly, because it is very difficult for transducer manufacturers to develop smart sensors that support all the existing network protocols, the smart sensor must be independent of the type of networking protocols. Secondly, smart sensors should be modular so that a faulty sensor element can be replaced without replacing healthy communication element. To solve these problems, this paper investigates the feasibility of an IEEE 1451 based ZigBee smart sensor system. More specifically, a smart sensor for large network coverage has been developed using ZigBee for active telemetrics.
