Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Local Operating Networks (LON) are becoming increasingly used in automated systems in the home, industrial buildings, transportation systems, and other areas. Loy (Coactive Networks, U.S.) , Dietrich (TU-Wein, Austria), and Schweinzer (TU-Wein, Austria) present an overview of the use, protocols, and characteristics of these technologies. Fourteen chapters present information on distributed systems, nodes, the LonTalk protocol, neuron chip firmware, programming models, network topologies and network interconnections, supported input/output objects, interoperability, profiles, applications, tools, and new platforms.
