This project establishes a standard for wireless communication methods and data format for transducers (sensors and actuators). The standard defines a TEDS based on the IEEE 1451 concept and protocols to access TEDS and transducer data. It adopts necessary wireless interfaces and protocols to facilitate the use of technically differentiated, existing wireless technology solutions. It does not specify transducer design, signal conditioning, wireless system physical design or use, or use of TEDS.

IEEE Standard for a Smart Transducer Interface for Sensors and Actuator -- Wireless Communication Protocols and Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) Formats
This standard defines a wireless interface for sensors. It specifies radio-specific protocols for this wireless interface. It defines communication modules that connect the wireless transducer interface module (WTIM) and the network capable applications processor (NCAP) using the radio-specific protocols. It also defines the transducer electronic data sheets (TEDS) for the radio-specific protocols.
