Abstract

LON networks constitute a class of technology that allows intelligent devices such as actuators and sensors to communicate with one another using a standard protocol. In this way, a LON network is similar to a local area network (LAN) that allows office computers to communicate with each other. LON technology supports distributed, peer‐to‐peer communications. Individual network devices can communicate directly with one another, and a central control system is not required.
