Abstract: Society in its daily endeavours has become so dependent on automation that it is difficult to imagine life without automation engineering. In addition to the industrial production with which it is popularly associated, it now covers a number of unexpected areas. Trade, environmental protection engineering, traffic engineering, agriculture, building engineering, and medical engineering are some of the areas where automation is playing a prominent role. Automation engineering is a cross sectional discipline that requires proportional knowledge in hardware and software development and their applications. This paper describes the Wireless Control and monitoring of automation processes using a Microcontroller and Zigbee Wireless Protocol.
