Wireless networks have some great benefits over their wired counterparts, such as the reduced deployment cost of infrastructure and the support of mobile nodes. However, the wireless shared medium also brings some great challenges for data transmission, e.g. in terms of interference and collisions when multiple nodes what to transmit simultaneously. These challenges are even more severe if the networks are to be deployed in industrial scenarios with high requirements on reliability and low delay. Nevertheless, there are some approaches to cope with the contradicting relationship between physical prerequisites and requirements of the applications, as will be presented during this lecture.
