For dealing with the limitations and deficiencies of present wireless sensor network nodes, including poor flexibility, low degree of variability, low generality, Arduino development advantages are combined with ZigBee wireless communication technologies characteristics. The versatility and flexibility of wireless sensor network nodes and the cost and energy consumption of nodes are studied. First of all, ZigBee communication protocol and networking technology are studied, and based on this, communication protocols that the subjects need are designed. Secondly, the hardware system of ZigBee wireless sensor network node based on Arduino technology is discussed and designed. In addition, suitable Arduino development panel is selected in accordance with requirements of ZigBee wireless sensor network node. With the development panel as the design prototype, the circuit of functional module is designed. Thirdly, based on the wireless sensor network node communication protocol and hardware design, the software system of wireless sensor network node is designed and realized. The results showed that, through designing reasonable software working flow and compiling efficient information acquisition and wireless communication program, the intelligence orientation of node information acquisition and information transmission is achieved. In a word, it can be concluded that, combined with Arduino, a better function can be achieved.
