Wireless technology has evolved radically into key technologies that allow its application to Next Generation Manufacturing Systems. However the impact in nowadays business has been limited therefore a revision of relevant issues and trends is a must to establish a coherent vision for future research. This paper summarizes the underlying principles and challenges for the application of wireless technology, and its impact on next generation of manufacturing systems.
