ZigBee is most widely used in the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) in all the network protocol because of its low power consumption, On the other hand, ZigBee's rate is so low that we can't design a product that has the high value of practical application by using it, especially, Internet of Things (IoT) is applied to all walks of life, such as smart home and intelligent industry, needing a high rate WSN. This paper reports the design and development of a new WSN node based on WIFI protocol, which solve the problem of energy consumption and can transmit the sensor's data with a high-speed bandwidth. WI-FI is a wireless networks technologies that can connect personal computer and other wireless terminal equipment and high frequency radio signals. WI-FI networks, based on the IEEE802.11b/g standards, have become very popular in recent years, numerous Personal housings and corporations have added Wi-Fi access points to their wired networks, So WSN node base on WI-FI has practical value, which utilizes CC3200 which is a single-chip microcontroller unit (MCU) with built-in WI-FI connectivity and designed by Texas Instruments (TI). The CC3200 device is a wireless MCU that integrates a high-performance ARM Cortex-M4 MCU that can be used for signal acquisition and processing.
